Atala Nebot's insight:

Hi students of 2º ESO of IES Bañaderos! 
As you know, we have been talking about the Black Death in class.
Well, as I´ve already told you, you have to watch this video. Remember that I download the video in the computer of the class, so you can copy it in your memory stick, because the links of the BBC are giving some problems.
Then, you have to follow the next instructions: 
1. Copy the liryc in English 
2. Translate it into Spanish
3. Summerize with own words what happens in the video: how many people appears, what are they doing, what are they talking about, why, etc.
4. THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PART. Choose at least three of the rest of the posts of this page and create your own text explaining what were the Black Death, what, where and when happened, the main symptoms, how many people died, etc.
The presentation of the work is also important and don´t forget that it has to be HAND WRITTEN!!!
That´s all!
Good luck!
