World History, February
Hello to my world history classes! It has been a long time but not many school days since I have updated the blog. We have just finished studying the Renaissance and Reformation (1300-1600) and we saw how the Church abused its power and a new movement (under Martin Luther) looked to reform the Church. We recently had a lesson where students drew a map of Europe in 1600 to show the different types of Christianity that were forming in different countries. We also saw that in the Renaissance there was a yearning to return to the 'glory days' of classical Greece and Rome. Artists, scientists, philosophers, inventors, writers all prospered during the Renaissance. Because we have finished taking the test for the Renaissance and Reformation I will supply notes to any student interested but I will not be posting them online.
