. . . . or . . . . How to rebuild a civilization after the old one collapses?

This class is planned to spread over two semesters and culminate with attendance at a multi-school Medieval Tournament in the Spring.

In the first semester we will look at the Dark Ages; mythology, social history and occasional glimmers of light.

In the second we will focus more on the High Middle Ages; Chivalry, Romance, Manners, Vices, Virtues and Courtly Love!

Everything will be as experiential as possible, so expect both etiquette and mud wrestling!

The goal of this class is to foster a desire to “be the change” to help make our community, nation and world a better place for those who will come after us. Through practices of philanthropy, charity and stewardship we will dedicate the semester to helping three main organizations: one for humans, one for animals and one for the environment. Students will learn of other children from around the world who have made an impact for good through mindful choices, community awareness and civic action. They will also be in charge of the school store selling snacks and drinks of which all the proceeds will be divided up 3 ways at the end of the semester to go towards the organizations (one each for human, animal and environment) that they research and vote on.

This class will take students back to the earliest civilizations known to humanity! We’ll learn how these civilizations developed, why humans chose to band together in larger political structures, and how those civilizations still impact our lives today. We’ll also follow the progress of human civilization out of the ancient world and into more modern global history.
