Effects of the Enlightenment

Ninth graders explore the Enlightenment and its historical effects. As a class, they discuss the characteristics of kings, queens and monarchies. Pupils design political cartoons to illustrate vocabulary words. Using a graphic organizer, 9th graders create short skits, raps or television commercials depicting political, economical, and religious issues of the Enlightenment.
