Excuse me, but Sir Knowles sent me to find the missing pieces of the MELCon, do you know where I might find the main idea?
Why I think I have seen it. I believe it said along the lines of, "What made the Middle Ages as complex and interesting as any other time period?"
Ok, but where can I find the 3 key pieces of evidence that support the main idea?
Perhaps you should ask the friar, maybe he knows where they might be.
Why yes my child, they go as follows: Crusades, Art, and Economics.
Noble Friar! Do you know about the 3 key pieces of evidence that support the main idea?
Do you also know about the ways the author of the piece link it back to the main idea in support?
Yes, follow me.
Now, this book says, "The Crusades had another effect: they exposed European Crusaders to Islamic literature, science, and technology, and this went on to have a lasting effect on European intellectual life."
"Religious art started changing as well, as artists were hired to create paintings and decorations of the Virgin Mary, Jesus and the saints for churches. Feudal life was transformed when new farming tools like heavy plow were introduced. With these tools, fewer farm workers were needed, but more food was produced."
Thank you, Frair!
And for the conclusion, "For the art, economics, and Crusades, the Middle Ages was a complex and interesting age."
