The following is an application activity where students work in debate groups to argue which Enlightenment philosopher made the greatest impact on history. In this debate students apply what they have learned about Enlightenment philosophers beliefs and how their beliefs contributed to many world documents (Declaration of Independence & U.S. Constitution). This activity is the culmination of my Enlightenment Unit. I use my Enlightenment PPT first for students to gain base knowledge then move onto an Enlightenment Placard Activity where students apply philosophers beliefs to the world documents which they were used in. Both PPT and Placard Activity are available for download.
