Added are the day to day plans which covers 3 weeks of teaching. There are more than 3 weeks in the bundle so feel free to make adjustments.
Do these with every chapter to allow the students to at least see what we are going to be studying before the unit begins. I have included 2 different versions of the Chapter Preview sheet. The chapter preview sheets take about 20 minutes to do in class.
The introduction PPT will be in Keynote and PPT format, so that you may adjust anything that you like. Have your students take Cornell notes during the presentation which is more of a slideshow/discussion. It is 28 slides long and takes 2 days to complete. The PPT goes over the following Enlightenment thinkers: Niccolo Machiavelli, Thomas Hobbes, John Locke, Jean Jacques Rousseau, Baron de Montesquieu, Denis Diderot, Voltaire, Mary Wollstonecraft, Ben Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and Simon Bolivar.
This is a basic introduction diagram to the Enlightenment. It will take a look at a few of the key players and essential questions of the Enlightenment. (10 MINUTES AT MOST)
This is a fantastic lesson that focuses on the music/art of the Enlightenment.Included id the sheet that you should have students fill in while you go over this as well. Youtube has tons of music and resources (takes about a day to teach and is really fun for the students).

Renaissance Dance from slideshow:
On the last slide of this presentation, I show the famous evolution of dance video from YouTube.com. The link will be below.
ENLIGHTENMENT SOCIAL CONTRACT ASSIGNMENT
This is a fun lesson where the students get to create their own rules to help create a bill of rights or social contract to show the importance of trying to work out a set of rules that everyone agrees on. This lesson takes approximately one class and is assuming that the teaching portion of this has already been done.
ENLIGHTENMENT FAIR PROJECT
We have done this project as individual teachers and as a World History department. Each group of 3-4 students picks one of the philosophers and does full research on their Enlightenment thinker. It works best before the Enlightenment fair to have the students present their findings. Included is the rubric as well as the project sheet. There are 3 different samples included with this version of the project.
ENLIGHTENMENT SHORT MOVIE
This is 7 minutes long but does a good job of summarizing the Enlightenment. Feel free to use it in the PPT or just show it separately.
The best way to do this is to have the students say the word with you and write down the definition which is to be said in class out loud by the teacher.
CRASH COURSE VIDEO GUIDE
This is a stand-alone episode focusing more on the American Revolution than anything else.
ENLIGHTENMENT THINKER CHART
This chart can be given as a stand-alone for the students to use their books or can be gone over with the teacher. It is a great resource for the majority of the thinkers from the Enlightenment.
ENLIGHTENMENT NEWSLETTER PROJECT
This is a short project for the individuals or groups of 2 to do. It can be done on a computer or on a blank sheet of paper.
This project is simple and probably could use some expansion but the idea is sound. Would love to hear any feedback or other ideas to make this project even better.
This is my test and review sheet.
ENLIGHTENMENT CLOSE READING ASSIGNMENT
Including are the PPT/Keynote with this as I think it makes it really clear for the students doing the work. The close reading freebee below goes really well with this assignment.
MANKIND THE STORY OF ALL OF US
Here is what is included:
- A question sheet in WORD format that will keep the students following along.
- Answers to the question sheet
- A set of notes that can be referenced for a discussion following the video.
-BONUS: History Channel Mankind Story of US Guide
This 9th episode is good for either junior high or high school as it deals with PIONEERS, North America, Siberia, James Cook, Australia, and Benjamin Franklin. I think this episode would work well with either Jr. High or High school.
Mankind embarks on a new age of exploration and tames the wilderness. In North America, Siberia and Australia ancient traditions are swept away in the name of commerce and science. Within a hundred years, the irrational fear that produced a witch trial in Salem gives way to a very rational cry for freedom. American revolutionaries confront a mighty empire. The battle for the modern world begins.
HEROS OF THE ENLIGHTENMENT
This is a great 2-day video that really digs into some of the big themes and people of the Enlightenment. I show it every year and the kids like it as well.
Government sheet as a gift for downloading this BUNDLE!
These some good ideas to have your students write about during the course of the year. They are apart of my free download that is in my store.
FLIPPED CLASSROOM GUIDE
This guide is a great way to teach a PPT/ Keynote. It allows the students to dig into the PPT/ Keynote and discuss with a group and meet with the teacher.
FAMOUS FIGURE EVALUATION
Having students evaluate these famous figures is a great way to have students dig deeper into these famous figures. It includes 6-page bios, a lesson plan, PPT, and a quote analysis sheet for each of them (Locke, Hobbes, Rousseau, Montesquieu, Jefferson, and Smith).
This is a 20 question guide with 10 question discussion guide.
I also added my 9 favorite Youtube videos that are all 3-4 minutes in length so that they may be embedded in the PPT. All you have to do is email me.
