British History and Culture: Prehistory and Early Middle Agesdodano: 01.10.2018
This semester the middle school students are studying British history and culture in their English classes. Last week they prepared presentations on assigned historical events that had taken place in Britain in early Middle Ages. They learned about consecutive invasions of the islands, great inventions and famous warriors, the life of celts, and many great kings. The also learned about veltic mythical creatures, the legend of Robin Hood and the Arthurian Legends.
By doing the presentations students not only learn about British culture and history but they also practice their foreign language speaking skills, learn to select adequate information, practice reading comprehension and doing research, and develop their oral presentation skills and learn useful techniques that will come in handy in their further education.
The Tudors and the Stuarts are next!
