Day 20--

Before we get started....How well do you know your Roman Numerals? Take this Roman Numeral Challenge to see (and open this page to use as a cheat sheet if you need help)

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 events that changed the nature of leadership in England during the 17th Century.
I need to focus on how religious, philosophical, and political differences led to conflict in England during this time period.
I will take notes and answer questions from a slideshow presentation on the English Civil War and Restoration.    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 in class we'll wrap up the presentation on the English Civil War.  Open your copy of the document called English Civil War Notes from last Friday's class. As we begin, review your answers to the questions we've dealt with so far. We'll be picking up where we left off so take a few moments to review what we've done so far. Follow along with the slide show and take notes in the document as we go. You'll be able to access the slideshow later if you need it.

After we're done, take a few minutes to check your slideshow of absolute rulers that we worked on last week. Make sure that you are all up-to-date on what's required: 
You'll find those requirements on the Feb 21 assignment page
If you did last night's homework, you should add a couple slides for Louis XIV; if you didn't do last night's homework, be sure to do it tonight, then add Louis XIV to your show later.

When your slideshow is organized and up-to-date, open a document called Absolute Rulers Chart, then make a copy so you can type in it. As we near the end of this unit, it's time to look back and think about the rulers you've encountered so far, especially in terms of how they may help you discuss the essential question above. 

HOMEWORK: Last night's homework was Chapter 7.3 - A: France under Louis XIV , pages 228-230; If you didn't do it last night, make sure you get it done for tomorrow when we'll have time to discuss it in class. The final assignment for the unit,
