This power-point contains nine slides which cover the origins of the Renaissance in Italy. Each slide is designed to incorporate full color vivid images of Renaissance art as well as to deliver content in a flexible way with three clicks per slide (1st click = art, 2nd click = topic question, 3rd click = notes/answer to topic question).
The curriculum in these slides aligns perfectly with the California State Standards for History and most recent California textbook adoptions. What makes these power-points special is the captivating Renaissance Art on each slide which really brings the curriculum to life and helps students to visualize Renaissance Italy.
The notes are based on an outline format and each slide contains a guiding question, which is displayed after the first click such as “How did trade with Asia help start the Renaissance in Europe?” and “Why is the city of Florence so important to the Renaissance?”. After the second click on each slide, the answer to the question is revealed, thus completing the question/answer set contained in each slide. This format allows the teacher to guide instruction one essential question at a time, either using the notes as lecture aid or by assigning each research question one at a time and then comparing and discussing responses.
A student handout is provided. The handout provides guiding questions for students to answer by summarizing the notes provided in the presentation.
