Text for Joan of Arc Packet
About the Book by E. Hathaway (excerpt from the Joan of Arc teaching packet) -Joan of Arc was born around the year 1412, and under typical circumstances for girls in the Middle Ages, she would have grown up to live a quiet and regular life. Women, who were famous or influential in the 15th century, were mainly royalty or married into power. Joan, on the other hand, broke through the barriers set before her to become one of the most influential women in French history.

Dante's Golden Legends by Mary Alexandra Watt

(Perfect to Accompany StoryMap)
Long celebrated as one of “the Three Crowns” of Florence, Giovanni Boccaccio (1313–75) experimented widely with the forms of literature. His prolific and innovative writings—which range beyond the novella, from lyric to epic, from biography to mythography and geography, from pastoral and romance to invective—became powerful models for authors in Italy and across the Continent.
