Note: If you are planning to retake the Renaissance Unit test, please let Mr. Knowles know when you will be coming in to take it. Before taking it, remember to:
  1. Make corrections to all questions you missed on the first test
  2. Complete and/or improve the formative assessments for the unit (Renaissance WebByte, People, Places, Things & Ideas, Renaissance Locations, Google Map, Comparison assignment). 
  3. Bring all those with you when you will retake the test.
Remember: The retake test is NOT the same test you took the first time, so be prepared before coming in.

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 the basic concepts of the Reformation, and identify the major ideas and people involved.
I need to find out why people challenged the Christian Church in the years following the Renaissance, and how the new ideas threatened the old established powers.
I will read and discuss a short summary of the textbook's reading while creating questions and comments about the reading. This is a formative assessment. The reading and questions and comments I come up with will help me understand the material I need in my next summative assessment. 

Last night's homework was to read pages 179-181, and to complete the second sections on the Reformation Reading Assignment.  

Today we'll start class with a Quiz over your homework. Use the homework you've completed to answer the questions as best as you can. 

Once you've completed the Quiz, we'll be looking at the next steps in the Reformation, by reading about what happened next. Get ready for that -- while others are finishing the quiz -- by opening up a new document called Spread of Protestantism Summary then use File > Make a copy to get a copy you can work on. Like Monday's class activity, you'll be working with a partner to read, discuss, and take notes/ask questions about the material. Your goal is to read through the summary before the end of class, and to take notes and record questions in the blank areas at the right.

HOMEWORK: After reading the summary, you should have a bit of background on the directions that Martin Luther's protests took in the years following the publication of his ideas. Now you'll need to learn a bit more. For homework, open a new file called Spread of Protestant Reformation readings, then use File > Make a copy to get a copy you can work on. Your homework tonight is to SKIM the reading (pages 182-187) to complete the CENTER COLUMN ONLY on the assignment. We'll work on the right hand column together in class tomorrow, so be prepared with the center column.
