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 SKIM the reading (pages 182-187) to complete the CENTER COLUMN ONLY on the Spread of Protestant Reformation readings assignment.  

Today we'll use the homework you've completed to complete the rest of the assignment. 

Open a Slideshow called Reformation Slides  then use the File > Make a copy.... to create a version you can work with.  Use the textbook and online resources to complete 2 slides of information following the directions there. Share it in the DropBox when you're done. 

HOMEWORK: It's time for winter break, and there's no assigned homework, unless you have missing assessments from earlier in the year. You are welcome to turn them in over the break in the Assessment DropBox. I'll be checking that regularly to get everything graded before we see each other again in January. If you've fallen behind in your assessments and want to get back on track before the final few weeks of the semester, get them done over break.
