Teacher's Guide to Medieval People, a Dramatic Study: The MATCH Box Project; Prototype Edition.
Williamson, Sharon; Green, Ruth
The Materials and Activities for Teachers and Children (MATCH Box) project was developed in 1965 to provide for the relatively intensive treatment of a subject over two weeks through materials geared to the elementary school level. Each MATCH Box contains materials, equipment and activities that work together to foster the teaching/learning of specific subjects. MEDIEVAL PEOPLE covers the activities and social relationships of eight characters living in a French medieval manor, St. Aliquis. Through records and films the students study the lives of these people, then assume the roles of the characters in scenes of their own creation. There are costumes, props and Character Books to aid the student. In role-playing the character students learn about the economic, religious, and cultural aspects of a typical French Medieval Manor, as well as the values and attitudes which characterized the era. At the end of the unit the students present a series of skits which demonstrates their new-found understanding of the subject matter and provides a fulfilling termination to the project. (SH)
