Monday, 10/5/15…….
John Green’s “version” of the Renaissance..working on your ability to question points of view and to clarify your own.
“Story you have been told” so far:


  • The Renaissance was an important cultural and historical movement/evolution/revolution (??) that shaped the world moving forward and still effects our culture today.







  • The Renaissance sort of relived and revived the glory days of Greece and Rome from the past




  • Renaissance was a “rebirth” after the Dark Ages of Europe




  • People that were educated and had expertise in many fields began to be celebrated. (Renaissance Man, Woman)




  • The Renaissance celebrated a secular way of living, humanism, individual expression, etc

JG’s contention, points……..






  • Was it really not that religious??




  • Where did the $ come from to pay for all this art and culture?




  • How is he saying that Europeans shouldn’t get “all the credit” for this Renaissance?




  • Why is he saying that the Renaissance wasn’t really such a big deal, or maybe that we should look at it differently than most historians?

BUT JG- YOU SAY THE RENAISSANCE IS REALLY A BUNCH OF INTERDEPENDENT THINGS GOING ON OVER SEVERAL HUNDRED YEARS…AND SINCE THE RENAISSANCE IS PART OF THE CULTURAL EXPANSION UNIT, I THINK OUR STORIES WORK PRETTY WELL TOGETHER!





  1. Think of something you want to change (REFORM) this could be at school, in a class, on a team, in your family, etc.




  1. What could you write and put in a public place that would convince others to consider what you think should be changed? Try writing these down in bullet points…




  1. Where would you put this?



  1. What effect would these points have on authority figures and those under authority figures?




  1. What would you be risking by speaking out, publicly declaring your views?

The Reformation….(YOU DON’T NEED TO “DO” THE BELOW, BUT MAKE SURE YOU UNDERSTAND THESE FROM THE STORYBOARD ACTIVITY AND FOR THE TEST ULITMATELY)


Page 54-55……. and (#) = from Crash Course specifically, plus Crash Course will help to understand the below…
(#) What about ML’s background caused him to question the Catholic Church?
What did Martin Luther do that was similar to you, and started the Reformation???
What did he want to reform?
What did he write to try and bring about reform?
Where did he put these writings?
What effect did this publication have?
(#) How did Luther help open up knowledge to the masses?

10/6/15…Stop…Review…front load/review some basics on government/society……Monarchy, Theocracy, Aristocracy, Oligarchy, Democracy


Explain four reasons for each with regard to how and why these movements/time periods are connected to Cultural Expansion.
Reformation Renaissance

  1. People started to speak out, share ideas 1. Artistic expression became valued again and “spread”

10/6/15- This is an example of how one would “Cornell Note” and really interact with our textbook….
Chapter 2, Section 1…

Interaction Info

Ottomans (73)-
Muslim empire that conquered and acquired new lands, in part by new, advance military tactics (cannons, gun powder, etc)

Ottomans style was to be fair to the people they conquered, allowing them to practice non-Muslim faiths for example.



Constantinople (74-75)

Major military and expansionist achievement for the Ottomans under Mehmed II. Created modern city of Istanbul (in present day Turkey) and created one of the most diverse cities of the time period.



Suleyman’s reign (76-77)

Great military leader, who expanded Ottoman empire to its greatest heights. Introduced many great ideas (law codes) and promoted arts, literature, and culture while also keeping many slaves and putting the empire in the end on a path to its demise.




Summary
Ottomans, major expanders by acquiring and conquering, and S/O to Suleyman, best Ottoman sultan, kind of a Renaissance man himself, despite mistakes at the end of his reign #multiskilled

Sample Interaction question and possible answers to interaction question……

  • In what ways does Suleyman influence our lives in the United States today?

1) Introduced the basics of our legal system

2) Credited with ideas of how to properly run governments

3) Sought to reduce corruption in government

Overall, was Suleyman more of a great leader or ruthless, cruel tyrant?

10/6/15


From Chapter 2, Section 1 (Ottomans)

Great leader evidence =

Cruel tyrant evidence =

And now make a commitment…….on a scale of 1-10

10 = greatest leader ever!!!

1= Cruelest, most ruthless tyrant ever

How do you rate Suleyman and why do you rate him so?

10/12/15 Group, “4 corners activity”…….Discussing Suleyman as a “cruel tyrant”, “great leader” or some combo of the two…


Prep

  1. Group’s position

  2. Most compelling evidence for your position

  3. Why other anticipated evidence is not as valid, compelling as yours.



Debate
Debrief

The people think of wealth and power as the greatest fate,

But in this world a spell of health is the best state.
What men call sovereignty is a worldly strife and constant war;
Worship of God is the highest throne, the happiest of all estates

Read the poem, and what’s the message?

The above is from one of Suleyman’s own poems…do his words more compare or contrast with your opinion of the man? Why?

10/13/15 if the “Four Corners” takes longer….

Yet another empire was “culturally expanding”





  1. Page 78…Define cultural blending and what are four causes of it?

Two or more cultures come into contact with one another and become “mixed”.

Migration, pursuing religious freedom, trade, and conquest.


2) Page 79-80…How did the Safavid Empire and Ottoman Empire relate one another?
3) Pages 80-81…What were some of the accomplishments of the Safavid Empire?
4) Page 83-84, Akbar, ruler of Mughal Empire in India 1556 to 1605, what was he known for as a military conqueror, liberal ruler, flowerer of culture, promoter of art and literature, and devotee to architecture?
5) Page 85- despite impressive monuments like the Taj Mahl, why were people suffering under Shah Jahan?
6) Page 87- How did the Mughal Empire decline and decay?
C. Columbus review and reviewed all of the Cultural Expansion “stuff” that should be completed from 10/5/15 to now……….

YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO SHOW ME ALL OF THIS WORK “DONE” WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 14!!!!
