									      Renaissance, Reformation, and Enlightenment
                      Introduction
•   The Renaissance, Reformation, and the
    Enlightenment were times of change and reform.

•   We see the creation of the Protestant Church as
    a reaction to Catholic church corruption. Martin
    Luther will nail his 95 Theses (complaints) on
    the church doors in Wittenberg Germany.

•   This is also a transition period where the
    spirituality of the Middle Ages gives way to the
    Humanist movement. This new focus on the
    physical realm brought about the rise of and
    development of great scientific innovation,
    literary and artistic development.

•   Enlightened thought will lead to further
    liberation for women and a movement to
    educate. The father s of Enlightened thought will
    inspire revolutions in America and France

•   State Social Science Learner Standards as they pertain to this Web Quest on the Middle Ages.

•   California State Content Standards for 10th grade World History.

•   Students in grade ten study major turning points that shaped the modern world, from the late eighteenth
    century through the present, including the cause and course of two world wars. They trace the rise of
    democratic ideas and develop an understanding of the historical roots of current world issues, especially
    as they pertain to international relations. They extrapolate from the American experience that
    democratic ideals are often achieved at a high price, remain vulnerable, and are not practiced
    everywhere in the world. Students develop an understanding of current world issues and relate them to
    their historical geographic, political, economic, and cultural contexts. Students consider multiple accounts
    of events in order to understand international relations from a variety of perspectives.

•   10.1 Students relate the moral and ethical principles in ancient Greek and Roman philosophy, in
    Judaism, and in Christianity to the development of Western political thought.

•   2. Trace the development of the Western political ideas of the rule of law and illegitimacy of tyranny,
    drawing from selections from Plato’s Republic and Aristotle’s Politics.

•   3. Consider the influence of the U.S. Constitution on political systems in the contemporary world.

•   California Social Science Standards for 10th Grade World History as it pertains to this Web Quest on the
    Renaissance, Reformation, and the Enlightenment continued on the following page.
               Teacher Page Learner Standards Continued

•   10.2 Students compare and contrast the Glorious Revolution of England, the American Revolution,
    and the French Revolution and their enduring effects worldwide on the political expectations for self
    government and individual liberty.

•   2. List the principles of the Magna Carta, the English Bill of rights (1689), the American declaration of
    Independence (1776), the French Declaration of the Rights of Man and the Citizen (1789) and the U.S. Bill
    of Rights.

•   These are the standards I have found correlate to some degree with this Web Quest on the
    Renaissance, Reformation and the Enlightenment. Democracy is a major theme in the standards
    throughout our survey course study of World History.

•   The Renaissance, Reformation, and the Enlightenment legitimately serves as another building block
    towards the evolution of American Democracy. Ranging from the 10 Commandments through
    Athenian Democracy, the Roman Republic, the Magna Carta, and the spread of Christianity
    (Protestant Reformation). This is another step towards diminishing the role of monarchs in Western
    Europe and another small step towards American Democracy. It is important for students to see
    American Democracy as a historical process over thousands of years, that slowly grows towards freedom
    for all people in Western Civilization. It is also important to note that when the American Union is formed
    women are unable to vote and slavery for African Americans still exists. Even after this a Civil Rights
    Movement in the 1960’s is crucial towards further democratizing America for all people i.e. women and
    minorities. The main concept is that democracy is a process that can be traced before, after and during the
    Middle Ages.
