Your Project

Part One: You leave your home in Europe to recapture the Holy Land as a Christian Crusader. Using course materials and the Lib Guide for research, write 3 dated journal entries (approximately a half page each) describing:

  1. Your religious beliefs
  2. Your journey (including the landscapes and peoples you see as you travel)
  3. Your perception of the Crusades
  4. Create a map of your personal route

 

Part Two:  You are a Muslim defending your home, the Holy Land. Using course materials and the Lib Guide for research, write 3 dated journal entries (approximately a half page each) describing:

  1. Your daily life (before the Crusades)
  2. Your religious beliefs
  3. Your perception of the Crusades

 

You may hand write (legibly and in pen) or use an iPad or laptop. Because this is a creative project, you may use various fonts and paper, photos or sketches, and you may write in first person (“I” “we”).
