Middle Ages_Feudalism and William the Conqueror

9 England in the Middle Ages – A great ppt to review

In 1066 England was invaded for the last time by William the Conqueror from Normandy.

He fought and won the Battle of Hastings which gave him the title King of England

It was William’s planned invasion and mounted cavalry that helped him win the battle.

William’s success also brought the Feudal System that existed in Europe to Britain.  It allowed a King to govern large kingdoms through local Lords or vassals.  (Trickey)

Portfolio Check in for Parent/Guardian

One advantage of using digital portfolios is the ability to have conversations about learning between students, parents and teachers.  My goal is to provide ongoing descriptive feedback to highlight accomplishments, evidence of learning and areas of learning to focus on for improvement and growth.

Digital portfolios are assigned to individual students and are kept private. To access a digital portfolio, students must know their unique login and password information. Parents will have access to their child’s digital portfolio where they can see the learning process. This form of communication allows the student opportunities to practice self-assessment and ownership of their learning (an extremely important skill for this year).

For homework this week, students will be asked to spend a few moments to review their Blogfolios with their parents. I ask that you take time this week to comment on one or more items on your child’s digital portfolio.

Please refer to the handout provided in class!  Thank you !
