21 Questions that ask students to compare and contrast three major political philosophers: Locke, Montesquieu, and Rousseau. See the preview file for example questions. There are 3 in the preview file but the full file has 21.
These questions are designed to help students address, and teachers access, California World History Standard 10.2: Students compare and contrast the Glorious Revolution of England, the American Revolution, and the French Revolution and their enduring effects worldwide on the political expectations for self-government and individual liberty and ESPECIALLY 10.2.1: Compare the major ideas of philosophers and their effects on the democratic revolutions in England, the United States, France, and Latin America (e.g., John Locke, Charles-Louis Montesquieu, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, SimÃƒÂ³n BolÃƒÂvar, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison).
Note: this particular file focuses on Locke, Montesquieu, and Rousseau only. See my other products for quizzes that address the other philosophers in the standards.
Examview Banks can be used to deliver questions via computer and can also be printed out. They can additionally be used with a CPS student-response ("clicker") system to assess students on the fly -- perfect for generating class discussion of the topic under study.
--------------> If you would like a more comprehensive teaching unit on the three philosophers, please consider my alternate product on this topic. It has FOUR separate question sets: one on each philosopher focusing solely on him, and then the file sold on this page, that contrasts the three all at once.
