9780810849167: The Middle Ages in Literature for Youth: A Guide and Resource Book (Literature for Youth Series)

The Middle Ages is a common topic of study in U.S. schools. Teachers regularly assign supplemental material, including books and websites, to enhance their students' understanding of the literature or history lessons found in textbooks, and they look to librarians for help in finding material. This comprehensive, practical guide to literature about this time period summarizes and evaluates material about the medieval period written for children and teenagers, including picture books, novels, nonfiction, and reference books. Focusing on Western Europe in the years 500 - 1500, this resource is conveniently organized around geographical locations, subjects, and time periods. Each section begins with a brief description of the historical period or group of people. A subject index gives further help to readers looking for particular topics. Works about the Middle Ages are described and evaluated in terms of content, age level, and accuracy. K - 12 teachers and public and school librarians will benefit from this work that will guide them to good books for the students they serve. They will also appreciate the sections of the book that describe professional resources, including books, articles, websites, and classroom activities.
