A Knight to Remember is an educational experience you and your students will never forget! This unique presentation of medieval arms and armor literally brings the museum to life and into your classroom. Your students will get a hands-on look at original and replica artifacts as they discover the truth about armor and the knights who wore it. This informative and entertaining learning format focuses on student interaction where they will have the rare opportunity to experience this subject matter in a way few other programs can provide.
Carlo Tuzzio is an experienced educational speaker with an extensive background in medieval military history. He has appeared at museums, libraries, festivals and has given hundreds of presentations at a variety of schools. His goal is to dispel the storybook myths and give people a chance to experience and appreciate this important chapter of European history. Whether you teach elementary, high school or college level classes, A Knight to Remember is structured to suit your needs.
This exciting program is designed to put history into the hands of the student. Although most of the artifacts are replicas, great care has been taken to select only pieces that copy historic originals. These reproductions are designed to the same weight and dimensions by master craftsmen who take precise measurements of the real items. The highlight of the show however is being able to handle original pieces from Mr. Tuzzio's private collection! This is something special indeed as most museums never allow the public to touch original artifacts.
Student participation is the key to effective learning. There's no shortage of this with A Knight to Remember! Not only will your students have the opportunity to ask questions, they will also participate in demonstrations as well. Very few programs offer this kind of interaction. Mr. Tuzzio's professionalism and dedication to providing accurate information will leave your students with a true understanding of how the armor and equipment of the medieval knight actually worked.
