Renaissance/Reformation Project

Research/Renaissance & Reformation Project

You will be researching people of the Renaissance and Reformation to gain knowledge about how people can impact history.  In other words, why should we care about them today?  When you are done researching, you will use your new knowledge to create a presentation and a project. You might have to do some of the research at home. You will be given a folder & envelopes in class to help keep you organized. Below you will find the requirements for the research presentation and project.

Requirements for research:

·         At least 4 research questions, which must be answered thoroughly.

·         At least 3 different sources

·         Notecards with information on one side and citation on back

·         Works cited page

·         Presentation must show that you fully understand your assigned person and his or her impact on history. (Again, why should we care?)
