Product Description
This is a week long project where students choose one important figure of the Renaissance and write a 6 paragraph essay on their achievements. It is guided through the ACE writing strategy, although whatever your school uses can be easily adapted. Included are the directions sheet, a basic organizer highlighting the accomplishments of 6 Renaissance figures, 2 organizers for research, an outline for the essay itself, a sample ACECE paragraph and the websites I had the students use for each figure. Hopefully with everything here it will be a breeze to set up, but a very meaningful experience for the students.

I chose to grade this assignment based off strictly English writing exam guidelines, as it was to prepare the students for an Expository writing exam, so I am not attaching the rubric and leaving individual teachers to decide.
