Learning Target Image
What 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 can explain the ideas behind Renaissance Humanism and how those ideas had changed from earlier times.
To do this, I must review the meanings of: 
Renaissance, humanism, secular, and other related terms, as well as find new information to support my ideas.

I will need to write a paragraph using two or more sources, including citations, that explains Renaissance Humanism and how it differed from previous ideas.  This is a formative assessment.See the rubric at the bottom of the page for details. 


Today you're going to write a paragraph. But as you write the paragraph, you'll need to include information you've already collected from your assignments as well as some new information from a list of online sources.  Information that should help you answer the question is noted below.
Here's your task:
USE INFORMATION FROM AT LEAST TWO DIFFERENT SOURCES OF INFORMATION (see below) TO ANSWER THIS QUESTION IN PARAGRAPH FORM:
What was Renaissance Humanism, and how was it different than the ideas that came before it?
USE CITATIONS TO SHOW THE SOURCES OF YOUR INFORMATION 
 Due at the end of the period (or by beginning of tomorrow's class if you can't quite finish). 
Sources to help you
Vocabulary to use (It makes sense to use these words when answering your question. You should find most of these words already defined in your homework assignments)
  • Secular
  • Petrarch 
  • Latin 
  • Vernacular
  • Liberal Studies 
  • Rome
Textbook pages to review (You should have read all these pages already, but may want to revisit them now)
    Pg. 162,  170-171, 172-173
  
Online resources to visit (You probably haven't seen these before, but may find useful information on them now)
NOTE: If you copy sentences or phrases word for word from a source, you must show those words in quotation marks. 
 If you use information from these sources Use these citations to show the  sources of your information
 Library of Congress (Library) 
 Renaissance Faire (Smith)
 Learner.org (Annenberg)
 ReadWriteThink.Org (International)    
 Catholic Encyclopedia (Loffler)

IF YOU FINISH WITH TIME TO SPARE, or want to do some homework tonight, you can add two new locations to your Google Map:
Bruges, also spelled Brugge, (in Belgium) and
Nuremberg (in Germany)
If you want to add a little information about why you've included each one, review the reading on page 175 about the Northern Renaissance. 
(NOTE: Brugge is where van Eyck did much of his work, and it's in the Low Countries, so information on those areas can help you here; Nuremberg was Durer's home base, so information about him and his country of Germany can help you describe Nuremberg)
