Casting Light on the Dark Ages Lesson Plan A lesson plan for a WWW search with a rationale as described above.
Marvellous Medieval Matriarchs If you thought that what women did during the middle ages was... yawn...sewed and cooked a lot...  snore.... well, see what you think after this!

Medieval Mission Surfs Up! Grab your brain and have fun! An introduction to a lesson on Women in the Middle Ages, using the WWW and targeted readings.

Picture Interpretation: Peasants Popes & Potentates This lesson on Medieval History involves analysing a picture to see what can be learned of society in the middle ages by careful examination of an image and consideration of what is drawn there. It is amazing how much can be learned from a picture.

Yin & Yang: Women in the Middle Ages

A comparative study in the form of web research, to investigate the phenomenon of the plight of women left behind while men are on crusades on the one hand, women who had political power on the other...and, err...on the third hand (a rather alien concept) the experiences of women who were neither, but rather were targeted and murdered, fairly systematically, as witches.  

Yin and Yang Lesson Plan A lesson plan to support the above lesson. This lesson uses a web links page (Marvellous Medieval Matriarchs) combined with a set of questions designed to develop an understanding of the differences in experiences that any one group can experience. Students are encouraged to draw from this an understanding that this applies to any given historical era.
