Product Description
Enlightenment Thinkers Lesson World History

"Very usable. I'm eager to use it this fall."

UPDATE: 4/15/16 I have added the key to the Enlightenment thinker chart.



Here is what is included:

- 27 slide PPT
- Enlightenment Thinker Chart
- Enlightenment Thinker Key
- Bonus- Vocabulary sheet

- 1. ENLIGHTENMENT PRESENTATION- My introduction PPT will be in Keynote and PPT format, so that you may adjust anything that you like. I have my students take Cornell notes during the presentation which is more of a slideshow/discussion. It is 28 slides long and takes 2 days to complete. I really feel this is the best way to look at the Enlightenment thinkers in chronological order focusing on the key contribution of each thinker. The PPT goes over the following Enlightenment thinkers: Niccolo Machiavelli, Thomas Hobbes, John Locke, Jean Jacques Rousseau, Baron de Montesquieu, Denis Diderot, Voltaire, Mary Wollstonecraft, Ben Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and Simon Bolivar.

2. Enlightenment Thinker Chart - This chart goes through the major thinkers of the enlightenment. It may be used as an assignment or as a group. I have also included the key for the chart.

3. BONUS VOCAB - This is my vocab sheet that I start every unit with for World History. I have the students write the word, say the word and draw a picture of the word. The activity really helps the students understand the curriculum a little bit better.
