Joanna the Mad: Women in Medieval Times



15-20 min



The learners watch a short video about women in medieval society. Then they have to do a summary exercise based on the information in the video. When the learners have completed the summary, a complete list of statements about the topic is shown. This will help the learners to remember key information of the topic at hand.

If necessary, the video can be run twice, also it is recommended to have the subtitles on in case English is not a native language or choose the subtitles in one’s native language. Alternatively, find a similar video in your own language.
