This is an approximate 120-minute lesson plan that can be split up over several class periods. This introduction allows students to receive a thorough introduction to the Italian Renaissance. Without a proper foundation, students can lose interest early in this unit. When paired with other Renaissance lesson plans in my store, this is a thorough and interactive unit plan.
At the end of the lesson, students are should be able to answer the following:
1. Describe the Italian Renaissance Period.
2. Explain what is Humanism.
3. Predict the outcome if the Renaissance Period never took place.
4. Imagine that we went randomly went back into the dark age in which people devalued education, arts, science and many other things that help society function successfully. What are five necessities you believe would need in another Renaissance?
As with many of my lessons, I integrate Common Core Standards, DOK instruction, differentiation for SPED/ELL/Gifted, and supplemental materials that can easily be adjusted to fit your classroom needs.
