Group Discussion (5 minutes):
What did you find to be a true account of the Crusades? (historically accurate and non-biased)
Please spend the first 5 minutes of class talking about what you discovered about the two different perspectives between Muslims and Christians during the Crusades and any evidence of historical facts about the Crusades from your brief glance at the documents --or from watching a video.
