My Students

Students in our English 9/World History integrated classroom are challenged to learn history while practicing language arts skills. What better way to incorporate learning about the Middle Ages and practicing reading than with a novel about teenagers and their horse who take part in the Crusades?

Our freshmen are part of an initiative to integrate English 9 and World History in a project based learning environment.

They are the only students in West Virginia who are currently part of such a program. Being from a rural area with many students coming from a low sociol-economic background, these students do not fit the stereotype of low performance. They have risen to the challenges we've given them and excelled!

My Project

From the School Library Journal: "Readers are caught up in the bloody battles, with alternating chapters revealing what is happening on the "home front," and in the Christian and in the Muslim camps. Tying these stories together is the red horse, Hosanna, who is the book's most compelling and empathetic character. The futility of war is a theme throughout and readers will discover that, much like war today, combat in the 12th century had devastating consequences." Because we are from a rural area, many of our students have an interest in horses. I also think they will be able to transport themselves to the time period as we study the Middle Ages and put themselves in the place of the characters.

Having this book will give students exposure to characters and conflicts of the time period, reinforcing their historical study of the Middle Ages, and it will also reinforce the literary aspects such as the personal conflicts these characters face as well.
