Topics Explored:

  • What exactly was the Age of Exploration & Discovery?
  • What events paved the way for this era? (Think: Crusades and Renaissance)

    • God: Spreading religion and church support

    • Glory: Intense competition between nations, the quest for recognition, and the pursuit of social and economic status

The pages for your students are expertly crafted in a Cornell Note format, with the left-hand column reserved for essential questions and responses, while the right-hand column provides space for filling in the blank notes as the teacher guides students through the presentation. Cornell Notes offer numerous advantages for learning, including:

  • Structured Organization: Cornell Notes format provide a clear structure for organized note-taking.
  • Effective Review: The format facilitates efficient review of key points and main ideas.
  • Active Engagement: Students engage actively by summarizing and questioning their notes.

I recommend using the left-hand side after each section and/or as a warm-up for the next day to solidify learning.
