7th Grade Renaissance Block

We are having a wonderful time exploring the mood and context of the 1300-1600s and finding that so much of our history is cyclical in many ways. One of the important aspects of this block is to help seventh graders understand cause and effect. For every action there is some sort of reaction (this theory does not just apply to physics!) The class has already had some meaningful discussions. This is the age when debate and conversation really get exciting.
