If you are teaching the canon or a survey course, this may be a helpful tool in introducing the Renaissance to students.
This lecture took me about 60 minutes (split over 2 days with time for note-taking.)
This zip file includes:
- A PowerPoint presentation that includes introduction to the English monarchy, images of Renaissance art, a brief introduction to poets in Elizabeth I's court and a discussion of how the Renaissance came to England (33 slides)
- A scaffolded outline for students to take notes (4 pages in WORD)
- A short quiz (7 multiple choice and 3 short answer) to give to students after learning and some review (2 pages in WORD)
