Black Death Period 6

Read the World History Book, (online) pages 540 - 545. Complete the map assignment (both sides), using maps on pages 531, 544, and the map link listed in Period 2's post.  Turn in the map when you are finished, and you can find more information on the Black Death in the Period 2 post.

Black Death Period 2

In order for history not to repeat itself, we need to understand the causes and effects of certain turning points. The Black Death (or Black Plague, or Bubonic Plague) was one of those turning points for Middle Ages Europe. Please use the following websites to research about the plague, as well as the packet that you received. You must complete the map in the packet to be turned in. Additionally, you should comment on this blog and answer these questions:
1) Imagine that you are a doctor during the Black Plague...what advice would you give to your patients?
2) Imagine you are a victim of the Black Plague...would you rather survive or die of the disease? Why?
