Plague Strikes Birmingham!

John Miller’s new Minecraft unit set in Medieval England opens that time and that culture to his 7th grade students – amazingly so! They took the knowledge they acquired and rebuilt 14th Century Birmingham in Minecraft.  They then used story-starters that I supplied to create detailed and coherent narratives about the most terrible problem people of that time faced:  the Black Death. John’s work is beyond cutting edge. Please take a look at the unit here:  http://minecraft.edtecworks.com/2016/05/08/recreating-medieval-birmingham-in-minecraft/
