This lesson starts with a flowchart on the forces leading to the Italian Renaissance and the four main ideas that came from this pivotal period. Interspersed throughout the PowerPoint are picture essays on some of the major achievements and people of the era, such as Leonardo da Vinci, Machiavelli's Prince, several rules of etiquette from Castiglione's The Courtier, the architecture of Florence's main church, and the artwork on the Baptistery doors. It ends with a picture essay on women's status during the Renaissance.
This is a self-contained PowerPoint that develops slide by slide while other notes for the students scroll down the side. It can be run as a timed presentation on its own, presented slide by slide for discussion, or integrated into your other lectures.This packet also contains a student reading, flowchart, and three short reading quizzes.
