In this activity, students research major figures of the Reformation and Catholic Reformation (as well as Erasmus). After reading, they decide the major characteristics (likes and dislikes) of each figure and fill out a graphic organizer. Then, they must "seat" the figures around a table. It is aligned to the VA SOL for World History II. I used it with my ELL students. It includes a reflection and extension activity.
Figures = Erasmus, Luther, Calvin, Henry VIII, Queen Elizabeth, Pope Paul III, Jan Huss, Johannes Gutenberg.
