This mini lesson is an extended power point on the Inquisition. Topics include but are not limited to: the Inquisition's origins, methods of torture and death, the effects of the Inquisition on questioners and heretics, and Galileo's experience as a heretic. There are 4 recap questions at the end, 4 discussion provoking questions, and 4 creative activities (a mix of social media, job ads, a visually creative task, and a town crier announcement). The activities can be completed individually, as a pair, or as a group. This will likely take two days.
***there is a lot of pertinent information in the presenter's notes of the power point, please make sure you look at them***
