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

"Dante's Golden Legend proposes that the Divine Comedy represents not only Dante's autobiography but also his attempt to portray himself as a martyr-saint whose poem will cleanse the Holy Roman Empire and the Papacy, of the corruption that prevents Rome from fulfilling its destiny as the City of God"

Boccaccio: A Critical Guide to the Complete Works Kindle Edition

Resource for Boccaccio's Decameron

(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.        

This book has been used to create the first Decameron StoryMap (forthcoming as a teaching tool for HS teachers)
