Today we did a quick debrief of the "classes" in feudal society and then we talked specifically about the pros and cons of being a serf. We noted that the serfs lacked some basic freedoms that we Canadians hold dear. For example, the serfs didn't enjoy the freedom to leave the manor whenever they wished. However, we spoke about how even our freedoms have some limitations: in Canada we balance individual rights with those of society. This led us to discuss religious freedoms and allowed us to segue (transition) to the course study guide on religion.
We ended class laying out a grid paper to allow us to draw a Celtic pattern - we'll finish that next class. The questions should be completed for homework.
