Day 18--

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 describe some of the goals and challenges of the European leaders during the Age of Absolutism.
I need to focus on how leaders during this time period used their power to try to get what they wanted, and on what obstacles stood in their way.
I will begin creating a slideshow that presents information about the powerful leaders of the time.    This is a formative assessment. I need to complete it carefully to add to the material I will need later. 

Key Question: How did European leaders during the Age of Absolutism follow their own interests while facing resistance from others, both from inside their countries and from outside?

Today, you'll be continuing work on your slideshow that you've been using to collect information about the challenges faced by the leaders of this time period and the attempts they made to overcome them. You've already started with Philip II, Elizabeth Tudor, and Henry of Navarre. If you haven't finished with their slides, you'll want to continue working with them. Remember, you need
  1. Two slides for each of the three rulers we've encountered so far. 
  2. On the first slide for each, include vital statistics about each leader (lifespan, country, time in power, etc.) and an image of them, too.
  3. On the second slide, describe one of the ways their power was challenged by others. Explain if that challenge came from outside their country, or from within (or a combination).  Explain how they tried to meet the challenge, and if they were ultimately successful or not.
  4. You may use the textbook for information, or use outside sources, but be sure to provide a URL on each slide showing where you got your information. You'll need that URL later to create your reference list. 
One last thing: Try not to use Wikipedia. Challenge yourself to search for other sites that contain good information.

Slideshow Part II: After you've created slides for the first three rulers we've encountered so far (above), you may want to start in on including some more. 
Tonight's homework will introduce you to a number of new, powerful rulers who had an impact on what happened in England's history once Queen Elizabeth's reign was over.

 James I Charles I Oliver Cromwell Charles II James II William and Mary

Include AT LEAST 2 of them, or more, with similar slides and information. If you want to do tonight's homework first -- to get an idea about all of them before you make your choices -- you may want to do that. If not, work on your slides in class and save your homework for out of class.

If you finish with time left in class, you may want to:
  • Catch up on past work (either the last assessment -- on the Age of Exploration -- or the last two homework assignments)
  • Review today's information using the onling Study Central materials
  • Get ahead, by completing your next homework assignment (due on Friday)
