Day 46--

Last night's homework was to write a paragraph linking the work of the 4 scientists discussed in class. 
As we begin class today, turn your paragraph in to the Daily Work Dropbox, or, if you've written it on paper, hand it in to the box on on Mr. Knowles' desk.

Learning Target ImageWhat will I be able to do when I've finished this lesson?How will I  accomplish this task?  How will I show that I have done this?How well will I have to do this?
 I will be able to understand how ideas of the Scientific Revolution led to new ideas about other areas of society.I will discuss the connection between the Scientific Revolution and the Enlightenment, then collect information about key people of the Enlightenment. I will read and discuss a paragraph from the textbook, then use a chart to collect information from the textbook. This is a formative assessment. My work will directly help me later as I complete my summative assessment for this assessment cycle.

Standard: History 4.2 -- Understand and analyzes causal factors that have shaped major events in history.

Key Question to Answer: How do people challenge, change, and build on the ideas of those who have come before them?

Content Focus--Ch 10: Revolution and Enlightenment, 1500-1800 (300-329)

For the last few days, we've been looking at how new ideas in the areas of math, science, chemistry, astronomy, and biology helped challenge, change, and build upon the ideas of others. 

Today we start investigating how those actions and ideas had an impact on other areas of society. 

Begin by reading the passage below (from p. 310 of your text).

After reading this short passage, turn to someone sitting nearby and talk about it. Try to find connections between what you just read with the section we've been looking at. Feel free to use your chart assignment from earlier (the one that lists people, times, locations, and accomplishments) to find connections. Try to answer this question: How did the earlier Scientific Revolution (what we've been talking about all week long) play a role in this new thing called "The Enlightenment"?

Be ready to share out your responses when finished. 

After we've discussed some possible connections as a class, it's time to get going on the next section of the text, where you'll learn more about how the Scientific Revolution led to what is called the Enlightenment. 

READ Chapter 10, Section 2 (310-317) 
Complete the Chart while you read, collecting information about the important people and terms from the reading. Don't forget the vocabulary terms at the end. 

Finish as much as you can in class; the rest is HOMEWORK, due, tomorrow.
