Notes de l'éditeur

  1. You can use this as a warm-up activity to post about 10 minutes before the start of class. Then when class starts, you can discuss the words the students posted.
  2. Answer: E. Have the students brainstorm what they know about each one, and generate examples. Top right: Vasco Nunez de Balboa discovers the Pacific Ocean. Bottom right: A French Jesuit attempts to convert the Iroquois in North America.
  3. The African coast in yellow shows the extent of Henry’s progress. It would not be until 1488, 28 years after Henry’s death, that one of his Portuguese countrymen would reach the southern tip of Africa, Bartholomew Dias and the Cape of Good Hope.
  4. Fill in the blank: Mayflower and Pilgrims. The Mayflower was supposed to land in Northern Virginia, but was blown off course. They ran out of provisions (including beer), and were forced to land in Massachusetts. William Bradford became the first governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. Religious freedom and toleration became the motivation for many more colonists to “New England”.Bottom right: William Bradford and others sign the “Mayflower Compact”, the first “constitution” in the new American colonies.
  5. Be sure to take note of the TOMATO, which was unknown to Europe before the Columbian Exchange. That just might be on the test. Can you imagine pasta in Italy without tomato sauce, or pizza for that matter! Inconceivable!
  6. Top right: a drawing of an African slave ship from Portugal. Bottom right: actual photo of Jamaican slaves working a sugar field, ca. 1850.
  7. What was it about the sale of indulgences that pushed many like Martin Luther to the point of PROTEST against the Catholic Church?Was a split inevitable after 1000 years of a Catholic monopoly on Christianity?
  8. You may want to consider the event known as the “Defenestration of Prague” which occurred in 1618. In that year, HRE Ferdinand II was elected crown prince of Bohemia (modern Czech Republic), one of his many titles. Ferdinand sent representatives to Prague, the capital, where they were rudely met by a group of Bohemian nobles who threw Ferdinand’s representatives out of a window (defenstrated) and into a pile of horse manure. This angered Ferdinand, who declared war on the nobles. Bohemia soon erupted in open revolt, and various allies jumped in to help Bohemia and in the process attack the Holy Roman Empire. The 30 Years War had officially begun!
  9. Open up a brief discussion here.
  10. Peter the Great so despised the long beards that were commonly worn in Russia (symbolizing the old ways), that he issued a new tax on anyone who wore a beard. Apparently mustaches were ok though.
  11. Before the reforms of the English Monarchy in 1660, Parliament could only meet when the King called for them to do so. Because Charles I wasn’t very popular among the members of Parliament, he simply decided to just not call them. So they had no voice at all in the government, which is what forced them to declare war. Interesting note about Oliver Cromwell. He had become so hated by pretty much everyone in England that when the Royalists returned to power in 1660, they had Cromwell’s body dug up, his skull removed from his body and placed on a pike outside the Tower of London! That’ll teach you to ban Christmas, Oliver!
  12. Ok, so James II technically abdicated the throne and fled to France, where he lived in the court of his cousin, Louis XIV.What made the Revolution “Glorious”? It was won without bloodshed, and was a total victory for Parliament and the people.The English Bill of Rights not only officially gave the throne to William and Mary, but it also:1.) Placed limits on the king’s power. Now Parliament called on the King, not the other way around.2.) Members of Parliament now had Freedom of Speech: could not be arrested for criticizing the king3.) Parliament now had to hold regular elections for to bring in new members4.) Re-affirmed England as a Protestant country with no ties to the Catholic Church5.) The king could not tax the People without consent of Parliament6.) Parliament alone, not the King, determines what is law in England
  13. is a fun Jeopardy game based on what we learned in Unit 1. Play it and see how much you know!
