Much like the Italian Renaissance art Powerpoint, this also breaks down into two parts. The first centers around a flowchart on the forces leading to the Renaissance spreading beyond Italy and how the Northern Renaissance differed from the Italian Renaissance. The second part is a timed Powerpoint of 100 art slides with some commentary showing the works of such artists as PIeter Brueghel the elder, Hieronymous Bosch, Jan Van Eyck and Hans Memling. As with the Italian Renaissance slide show, I typically show the timed part accompanied by music of the period to give students a feel for the age.
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. To illustrate the lesson and capture students’ interest there are also picture essays on the long strange evolution of our images of angels, the city Bruges, and the development of Elizabethean playhouses and actresses’ roles,. This packet also contains a student reading and flowchart to copy for students and three short multiple choice reading quizzes.
