The Enlightenment And Revolution


Now we will delve deeper into the events of the period through the essay “The Medieval Synthesis at The History Guide (when you reach the bottom be sure to continue to Part 2) and a video lecture on the development of the Scientific Revolution shared by a history teacher on his channel “DrPalmerHistory.”


You do not need to prepare or submit anything for the questions or create the chart on Scientist/Philosophers (although it would be a great note-taking idea).


The historical milestones of the Scientific Revolution and the Enlightenment were the products of many different minds coming together at the right time to affect changes in, well, just about every aspect of society. To keep track of everyone, you should be following the study guide handout for Unit 2, and you might find you want to add to that list as you read through these links and slide shows.




Complete these questions after reading through the text, websites, and slideshows and after viewing the videos in this chapter.
