This biography on Niccolo Machiavelli focuses on his attitude towards the separation of ethics and politics, his arguments in his seminal work - The Prince
- and his eventual downfall at the hands of the powerful Medici family.
The biography includes a series of questions based on the reading.
In using this in my own class room, students are encouraged to:
1. Number the paragraphs
2. Read the biography
3. Highlight answers in the reading
4. Use complete sentences
The answer key demonstrates these steps.
You might also consider a mini-unit I have uploaded on Theories of Government
. This unit includes a PowerPoint and graphic organizer, biographies on the philosophers discussed (with the exception of Jean-Jacques Rousseau), and two types of assessments.
