A note about geography: If you have not mastered any one quiz at this point, I recommend you assign yourself an academic detention so you can study. I am signing Field Trip passports for passing grades tomorrow. Passing all of your geography quizzes will dramatically raise your grade!
Begin studying for your Leading Figures of the Renaissance Quiz! Review class notes and optional homework articles. You may even want to go online to review the presentations.

You should practice online. Then, use a paper print out to practice on paper. Do this over and over until you can fill out the entire worksheet from memory. There are 47 countries. Bodies of water are extra credit.
Class notes. We saw a number of these advancements in the video last week, but influences of the Renaissance still affect the way we live today-- so let's give them the time they deserve!
Partner Work. Read, track, highlight and summarize. Advancements during the Renaissance. Then, answer the questions following expectations-- complete, detailed, 7th grade-level sentences. No TMNT.
Optional Homework for Extra Credit: Pretend you are a newspaper reporter during the Renaissance. Write an article describing the advances that you are seeing in architecture, painting, literature, and/or science. You may decide to write a general article about all of them, or it can be a specific article reviewing just one field. Use this handout to help you write a phenomenal article!
Remember: This is a newspaper article! You should use academic language and complete sentences. You should be writing the whole time given for the Do Now. Look at your homework if you’d like.
And don't forget to post it in the comment's section of today's lesson. That's where I'll be checking!
