Day 16--

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 how powerful rulers in 16th Century Europe faced challenges and how they tried to overcome them. 
I need to understand how important religion, overseas exploration, and technological improvements were in determining events at the time.  
I will review my homework assignment, then focus on one of the leaders presented in the lesson to consider how powerful they were.    This is a formative assessment. I need to add to my own assignment and participate in the activities so I can use the information later on. 

You had homework last night. Whether you completed it or not, use this online homework check to see how well you've done. 
Read the instructions carefully, and use your homework to complete it as well as you can. 

While you're waiting for others to finish, you should check your Google Drive to see if all the assignments from our last unit, the Age of Exploration, have been organized into a single folder. If you haven't already, create a new folder for all those assignments and documents, and organize them so you have room for your new unit assignments. (You can even create a new folder for those now, and file them as you go!)

Once all students have completed the homework check, we'll use it to review last night's assignment, and to look ahead to where we're going. 
For now, review the information you receive in your email and your homework to make sure you know as much as you can about these three leaders. 

 King Philip II     Queen Elizabeth I Henry of Navarre

We'll us a Prezi and some short videos to look at our first 3 leaders during this time period as we start to think about the essential question for the unit:

How did European leaders during the Age of Absolutism follow their own interests while facing resistance from others, both from inside their countries and from outside?
