Review:
Last night's assignment was to read the last 2 pages of The Spread of Protestantism, pages 187-188. Take this QUIZ to see how well you did. Use your assignment while you take the quiz, but do not use your textbook or other students to help.


In Class Activity:
After you take the quiz, you have some choices ahead of you. Use this checklist to decide what YOU need to work on.... and get to work on it!

Have you...
  • Completed the last slides of your Reformation Slide Show? You should be able to finish it, with last night's assignment, now that you have information about Pope Paul III and St. Ignatius of Loyola.
  • Added important terms to your Personal Dictionary, and added enough definitions, synonyms, antonyms, and other details to make the words there clear to you?
  • Started working on your next assessment (#6) due on Monday? You'll have the weekend and Monday to work on it, but you might want to start now writing your blog post to answer this question:
How did ideas of the Renaissance lead to major changes in the Christian Church?
To help you answer this question, you should review your slideshow (it connects people, in order, with the development of major changes in the church) and you might also want to review the main ideas of the Renaissance (from our last assessment cycle) so you know which ideas led to events in the Reformation. Those ideas might include:
  • Humanism (170)
  • Secularism (162)
  • Growth of urban society (162)
  • Individualism & liberal Studies (172-173)
  • Changes in social standing (166)
  • Differences between Italian and Northern Renaissance (175)
  • AND DON'T FORGET the link between the Renaissance and the Reformation: ERASMUS (176 & 178)


HOMEWORK:
Tonight's assignment is to be ready to turn in your assessment on Monday. Anything on the checklist above would be appropriate to work on over the long weekend to make next Monday easy.
