Directions:
 
Directions: Please follow the directions in the box below to complete the assignment.  Be sure to complete the assignment and carefully check your work before submitting your assignment for a grade. 


Part 1: Researching and Enlightenment Philosophes

 1.   Now that we have entered the Age of Enlightenment in 18th Century Europe, it is time to learn more about each of the "philosphes" or Enlightenment philosphers who forever changed the relationship between
       the people and their government.  Please choose a partner you would like to work with on this assignment.    For this assignment, you may also work alone if you prefer. 

       Each group will be assigned ONE of the following philosphes:

 
         Thomas Hobbes (551) 

        John Locke (551-552)

        Voltaire (552)

        Baron de Montesquieu (553)

        Jean Jacques Rousseau (553-554)

        Cesare Bonesana (554)

        Mary Wollstonecraft (555)

       Adam Smith (556)


 2.   Next have one member of your group open a blank Google doc on their Chromebook.   Share the Google Doc with the other members of your group. 

 3.  Spend time with your group researching your Philosphes.  Use the Google doc to contribute notes and information about your Enlightenment philosopher.   Doing a good job on the research will assist you in the
      next part of this assignment.  

       Be sure to include the following information in your research:

        - Information about their background (Home country, occupation, education, etc.) and any other personal information

        - What "enlightened ideas" did they have about government?  What did they believe about the relationship between government and the people. 
          Be sure to explain these ideas with additional information and examples. 

        - What was the impact or results of their new ideas about government?  Be sure to explain.

        - How did their Enlightenment ideas influence the United States within the Declaration of Independence, U.S. Constitution, and Bill of Rights?  Be sure to explain.  (see page 554)
      


Part 2: Become a Social Media Influencer for the Enlightenment!

1.   Imagine that "social media" was available to your Enlightenment philosphes.  Consider and discuss with your group how they would use social media to spread their ideas. 


2.  Choose one of the following "social media" outlets to use with your philosphes to spread their ideas. 

       


3. Next, download the corresponding Social Media Template below.  Be sure to click File > Save as Google Slides.  Share the template with your partner so both of you can collaborate and contribute.  You will
    need to "edit" the existing content and change it to fit your philosphes. 

    Twitter  |  Facebook  |  Instagram  |  Youtube

4.  Using the information you researched about your philosphes, complete the template with as much information as possible.  Be sure that your "posts" convey information about your philosphes and their
     Enlightenment ideas about government.  For example, your post should not just day "Sup everyone!" 

     All posts should be filled with the following content:

        - Information about their background (Home country, occupation, education, etc.) and any other personal information

        - What "enlightened ideas" did they have about government?  What did they believe about the relationship between government and the people. 
          Be sure to explain these ideas with additional information and examples. 

        - What was the impact or results of their new ideas about government?  Be sure to explain.


5.  When you have completed your post, please attach your work to an email.

    Here is how:

    - Open Microsoft 365 on your Chromebook

    - Open Outlook which is your email program

    - type in my email address:
