Note: If you are planning to retake the Renaissance Unit test, please let Mr. Knowles know when you will be coming in to take it. Before taking it, remember to:
  1. Make corrections to all questions you missed on the first test
  2. Complete and/or improve the formative assessments for the unit (Renaissance WebByte, People, Places, Things & Ideas, Renaissance Locations, Google Map, Comparison assignment). 
  3. Bring all those with you when you will retake the test.
Remember: The retake test is NOT the same test you took the first time, so be prepared before coming in.

Learning Target ImageWhat will I be able to do when I've finished this lesson?   What idea, topic, or subject is important for me to learn and understand so that I can do this?   What will I do to show that I can do this? How well will I have to do this?
 I will be able to explain the basic concepts of the Reformation, and identify the major ideas and people involved.
I need to find out why people challenged the Christian Church in the years following the Renaissance, and how the new ideas threatened the old established powers.
I will read and discuss a short summary of the textbook's reading while creating questions and comments about the reading. This is a formative assessment. The reading and questions and comments I come up with will help me understand the material I need in my next summative assessment. 

Last night's homework was to read the textbook reading associated with the summary you've been reading (176-178) and complete the first sections on the Reformation Reading Assignment. Turn your assignment in to the DropBox. 

Today you'll begin a short research assignment about a central figure in the Reformation. Open a Google Doc called Reformation People Research and follow the instructions there. You'll be assigned a person to focus on; it could be someone you read about last night, in tonight's assignment, or in a later assignment. Learn as much as you can about the person in the time you have in class. 
 Desiderius Erasmus    Martin Luther Charles V (Holy Roman Emperor) 
 John Calvin Henry VIII (Henry Tudor)    St. Ignatius of Loyola 
 Ulrich Zwingli  Pope Leo XJohn Tetzel     
 Thomas More   Pope Paul III Frederick of Saxony 

Homework:  Finish Part II questions of the Reformation Readings assignment (Terms, People, and Questions) as you read pages 179-181 of the textbook.  Due Tomorrow at start of class.
