    A unit study in a book, this title includes informational text, comprehension questions, quizzes, projects and additional research ideas for your students. Six chapters cover different aspects of the Renaissance – an overview of its beginnings, art, science and technology, literature, exploration, and architecture. Within each chapter, there is a 2-6 page story followed by two pages of discussion questions, some of which are short answer, but many that are more thoughtful, essay type questions. Sample answers are included. The real unit study component is the "task" page in each section, which holds 5-10 very diverse, hands-on activities to really engage in and explore that Renaissance topic. These ideas range from simple to more time-consuming and use a variety of skills, so you can pick and choose as many as you and your students are interested in. You might create a chart on a Renaissance invention using the 5 W's and H (who, what, where, when, why, and how), research one of the Renaissance explorers and present your information in a brochure, find out about the bolded terms in the story and add them to your fact file, create a recruitment poster that would entice men to sign onto a ship that was headed to unknown parts of the world, write a Petrarchan sonnet, use a bar of soap and plastic knife to create a Renaissance style sculpture, paint your own fresco using tempera and plaster…I could go on and on! The ideas are so varied and fun that I'm definitely keeping this one in mind when we study this time period! A task checklist and task answers (where applicable) follow, and a unit test with multiple choice, short answer, matching, and essay questions rounds out each chapter. If you are the unit study type, this will be a great source for studying the Renaissance and all the text you might need would be right here, in addition to the activities you are looking for; if you prefer a more "traditional" approach, I would highly recommend incorporating the task portion of this book into your study to spice it up. I could also see this being used by a homeschool co-op teacher. Pages can be copied and used for the purchaser's needs in a home or classroom setting. You could read aloud or assign pages to be read at home, discuss the questions orally or assign some as hw, complete activities together, etc. You have all the makings of a memorable lesson for your students: the Black Death, the Reformation, powerful families like the Hapsburgs and Medicis, fabulous art and music, scientific advancements, amazing literature about knights and castles, Shakespeare and DaVinci, and loads more! 144pp, pb. - Steph

    This book of primary source documents explores the history of the Renaissance and Reformation – through the very words of those who were an integral part of that history. Well-known, and perhaps not-so-well-known, these historical figures were influential in their times: Petrarch, Lorenzo Valla, Lorenzo de' Medici, Savonarola, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Machiavelli, Erasmus, John Wyclif, Jan Hus, Martin Luther, Ulrich Zwingli, Conrad Grebel, Michael Sattler, William Tyndale, Henry VIII (and Thomas Cromwell), Thomas More, John Calvin, and John Knox. These selected writings vary in content, from biographical and historical to theological and literary. ~ Zach

    Fans of Susan Wise Bauer's Story of the Worldare thankful she's writing a series for young (and not-so-young) adults. History of the Renaissance World is third in this series and tells the story of a world in transition. From the end of the First Crusade through the beginnings of our modern world, Ms. Bauer details the declining influence of the Popes even as the Inquisition seeks to assert their control; ordinary people seizing power even as kings and emperors cling to their "divine rights"; and world-changing catastrophes (ie. Little Ice Age, Great Famine, and Black Death); even as adventurous exploration opens up new worlds. Plentiful maps and illustrations accompany the distinctively readable text. ~ Janice
