Learning Target ImageWhat will I be able to do when I've finished this lesson?How will I  accomplish this task?  How will I show that I have done this?How well will I have to do this?
 I will be able to show what I know about the Scientific Revolution, the Enlightenment, and the American Revolution.I will use assignments and notes I've created during the unit to show what I know about theScientific Revolution, the Enlightenment, and the American Revolution. I will complete a multiple choice test. This is one of the summative assessments for this assessment cycle and will have a large impact on my class grade.

Today it's time for your Unit Test on the Scientific Revolution, the Enlightenment, and the American Revolution

This is an open-note test, so get out and/or open up your homework assignments from the unit, as well as any other assignments you've completed, including notes from in-class activities. You may use any of your own work, but may not use other sources (no textbook, no Internet searches, no help from others). 

Here are the assignments you've had in this unit. If you've completed all of them well, you should have all the information you need to ace the test.
 Homework     Due In-Class Assignment 
 Ch 10.1 Chart: Scientific Revolution 4/9 In-class questions (Map, turning point, etc.) 4/9
 Ch 10.2 Chart: The Enlightenment     4/12 Scientist/Astronomers Causal paragraph 4/10

Once you've completed the test, hand it in and turn your attention to your written assessment, due tomorrow at midnight. 
Be sure to use information from class, from your own research (at least 3 sources), and your own opinions, to write a clear essay on the question:
How do people challenge, change, and build on the ideas of those who have come before them?
Be sure to include in-text citations showing the source of your information, a properly formatted list of Works Cited, and unit vocabulary terms when appropriate. Highlight your vocabulary terms to emphasize them the first time you use them. 

Links to information on many of the people we've discussed can be found below, and a suggested outline is also available.
