The Black Death


For this assignment, you’ll create a PowerPoint or video presentation about the Bubonic Plague that struck in the middle ages.  You need to have at least one slide/segment for each of the following:

  • Explanation: what was Bubonic Plague?
  • Causes
  • Symptoms
  • Medical Treatments- what did doctors use to try to fight the plague, and to keep themselves alive while treating it?
  • Other treatments (be sure to include the Flagellants)- what did others besides doctors do to try to keep themselves from getting the disease?
  • Disruption of normal life during outbreaks – how was life changed for people who were living in plague-stricken areas?  You’ll probably need to think critically for this one.
  • Mortality Rate– how many are believed to have died?
  • Results – how did the Black Death change Europe and the world? 3 slides for this at least.  Think in terms of social structures, economics, etc.
  • Include a title slide and a works cited slide. You may use any format (MLA, APA, Chicago, Turabian) you wish. 
  • Your background must have color and each slide must have both a picture and text information.
