PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a three part assignment I have my World History II students do. It involves key artists, writers, explorers, monarchs, scientists of the time period.

Part I is researching key individuals from the period of the Renaissance and other eras to create a Powerpoint presentation. The following people are in this project:
• William Shakespeare
• Leonardo da Vinci
• Lorenzo de Medici
• Machiavelli
• Gutenberg
• Queen Isabella & King Ferdinand
• Donatello
• Raphael
• Erasmus
• Michelangelo
• Thomas More
• Galileo
• Copernicus
• Cervantes
• Kepler
• Elizabeth I
• King Henry VIII
• Prince Henry the Navigator

Additionally, an "Accomplishments" list is included that students must make sure they pair the correct accomplishments to the correct figure in their PPT.

Part II is a "Scavenger Hunt Quiz". I have included 20 "Who Am I Questions" that students can answer if they completed Part I. I count this as a quiz grade.

Part III- Students have to select a person from the list and write a paragraph explaining how they represent the "Renaissance Man of the Era". They must include the ideas of humanism to justify their answer. This counts as a homework grade.

I have used this or a version of it for 20 years and it has been very effective for my 10th grade World History II students at multiple levels. I hope you find it useful.
