Aim: The historians of 2016 will visit the virtual Renaissance art galleries of five or more of their teammates. After they visit the galleries they will sign the guestbook (leave a comment), commenting on what they liked, any questions they may have, or any constructive critical feedback.
Task 1: Submit your homework here.
Task 2 Quick Question: During the Renaissance people started to care about history and ideas from the past (humanism) and their own personal happiness (individualism). Do you think society will ever go back to how it was before the Renaissance? Why or why not?
Task 3: You have 10 minutes to get your virtual Renaissance galleries complete and posted to you history portfolio. If you need to see how to post your gallery to your portfolio, you can see a video here.
If you finish early, you should visit the galleries from another homeroom and sign one of their guest books. Here is a link to the history portfolios.
Task 4: Visit five or more of your teammates virtual art galleries and sign the guest book.
When you sign the guestbook, you should write about what art pieces you liked, any questions you might have, and any constructive critical feedback.
Example: Thank you for the opportunity to visit your virtual art gallery. I really enjoyed the Renaissance paintings that you chose for your exhibit. You showcased paintings that showed perspective, realistic figures, and response to light. Why did you choose to include so many portraits? The only thing I would have changed would be to include more paintings that reflected the interest in nature during the Renaissance.Sincerely,James Sanders
Homework: Weekend homework. Read the chapter on the Italian Renaissance and complete the questions at the end of the packet.
