Review
Last night you had a homework assignment:
  1. What did Erasmus hope to accomplish by writing The Praise of Folly? (177)
  2. What actions by church officials seemed to go against popular ideas about what the church should do? (178)
  3. What were some of the biggest differences between Martin Luther and the Church? (179)
  4. Why did many German princes support Luther’s changes? (181)
If you did the assignment as a Google Doc, share it with Mr. Knowles at this time. If you did it on paper, hand it in now. We'll go over the answers on Monday.

In Class Activity
After turning in your assignment, it's time to learn a little more about the people you read about last night. If you haven't already downloaded your own copy of the slide show we looked at in class yesterday, it's time to do so now. (**Create a new Google Doc from a Template called "Who's Who in the Reformation" -- it might be on the second page of templates -- to get a copy of your own.)

Your job today is to complete the slides for Erasmus, Luther, Gutenberg, and Charles V. For each person, you need to answer three questions:
  • Who was he?
  • What did he do?
  • What was his impact on religious beliefs?
Use the textbook or, if you like, outside sources to find answers to those questions. 
Try visiting the sites below to learn more about the people in this assignment if you need to: 

After you complete the slide for Charles V, insert a new slide (look for an icon at the top of your screen that is a rectangle with a + in it, or use Insert>New Slide) and explain how Erasmus' actions led to Luther's actions, how Luther's actions were helped by Gutenberg's actions, and how all those led to Charles V's actions. This Cause and Effect slide is an important step on the way to answering your assessment next week, so spend some quality time thinking about it and completing it. 




You can also continue to work on your Personal Dictionary with the following terms to your list:

Precise (177)


Ignorant (178)


Indulgence (178)


Devotion (178)


Salvation (178)


Edict (179)



HOMEWORK:
Tonight's assignment is to complete any of the assignments above that you haven't finished yet. Finish getting definitions for your personal dictionary; complete answers and your cause and effect slide for your Who's Who slide show. Or complete last night's assignment, if you didn't do it last night.

And of course, complete any late assessments (#1-5) if you have any.
