Enlightenment Review Sheet

...can be found here.

Remember, in addition to knowing the names and terms, you need to know why these things are still important, and how the ideas of Enlightenment era philosophers can be applied today.

Online reading due 11/16

Please read this article that summarizes the significance of the Enlightenment era, and answer the questions found here.  You can either write in complete sentences on a lined piece of paper, or you can print out the questions and answer directly on the sheet.

Henry VIII and family

Here is the keynote presentation on Henry VIII and the creation of the Church of England.  Here are the points that make all this stuff so important, historically:

1.  Henry used Parliament to separate the Church of England from the Catholic Church (even though he didn't have to do that).

2.  Henry didn't really care about "religion" so much as he did his divorce.  Therefore he left it very unclear exactly what the religious practices of the Church of England were.

3.  He never solved the problem of a strong male heir, so the mess he left wasn't easily resolved.

Additionally, here's the homework assignment about Elizabeth.  The reading can be found online here, and the questions here.


English Revolution Syllabus

This is a long unit; here's the syllabus in case you need it.

Also, if you are curious about the Magna Carta of 1215, here's a translation of the whole thing.  (We looked only at points 12 and 39, and we used a slightly different translation.)

Again, remember - why is the Magna Carta so important?

Homework due 9/13

In case you misplaced the homework assignment, it can be found here.

Review Materials

When reviewing, think not only of the names and terms, but also how these ideas fit together to form a narrative.  In other words, you should be able to use names and terms to tell the story of the Protestant Reformation as a whole.

A fun way to review!  The Protestant Reformation Song!

Review the terms and apply them using the Protestant Reformation Perspectives chart.

Coming soon - the Protestant Reformation Review Sheet.
