Sample Pacing of the Lesson:
Aim: What were the factors that led to the Enlightenment?
SWBAT: Determine the factors that led to the Enlightenment by examining a video clip, reading passage and answering a series of guided questions that correspond with reading and video.
Do Now Activity: Students are asked to examine a map of Europe. Students will be asked guided questions that will require them to use geography skills, recognize the time period and location of the Enlightenment. This is a great activity that fosters students ability to activate prior knowledge and allows the teacher to promote an active discussion.
Bonus Additional Video Activity: Students will watch a video clip on the Enlightenment in which they will answer guided questions of how the Enlightenment changed society. A strong suggestion is pausing the video and having students read the questions ahead of time. At some points in the video, it can go fast.
Document Activity: Students are going to read a series of documents that will ask students to activate by answering questions from the English Civil War, Divine Right, and documents about Thomas Hobbes, Montesquieu and John Locke. This activity is Common Core aligned.
Exit Ticket Activity: Students will answer comprehensive multiple choice questions and short answer questions about the Enlightenment.
