As many of you know, I also write for The Old Schoolhouse Magazine (TOS) on topics related to history, literature and the Charlotte Mason Approach. For the first time, TOS is offering a free digital link to their magazine, so that you can read the entire issue online! So I am posting this by way of providing the link to you to read my latest article on “Teaching Medieval History Through Literature.” This is great timing for those of you planning to teach this historical period in the fall! Here is the link.
I have two additional postings on Medieval History that might be of interest. For those interested in Shakespeare’s Hamlet I’ve provided some background notes which you may find helpful here. Also, some insight into King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table here. Study of the Medieval period should offer each and every student and teacher/parent a delightful journey into the past full of character lessons, adventure, pathos and insight into our cultural heritage.
