The Protestant Reformation

Teacher Page


This is a very sensitive issue so it would be good to do this later in the school year.  Students need help building social skills; they need to learn how to work cooperatively and be respectful fo others' cultural backgrounds in order to effectively do this WebQuest with little or no unfavorable interactions between students.  So, once you as a teacher know your students, worked with them on these social skills, and are comfortable with them, then you can introduce a topic such as this.


Pennsylvania State Standards:

8.4.9.A: Compare the role groups and individuals played in the social, political, cultural, and economic development throughout world history.
