Renaissance Fair Role-Play For Fun & Profit
Role-playing can be an informative and entertaining way to learn about historical periods, such as the Renaissance, far beyond traditional classroom learning alone. This title introduces the history of Renaissance fairs, looking back at the first festivals from the 1960s and exploring how they've changed and adapted over time. The text also addresses research skills such as safely finding information online and using in-school resources (including teachers and librarians) to investigate the Renaissance. Also discussed is the career prep that may come from attending Renaissance fairs, for such relevant careers as acting and A/V equipment management.
