Renaissance/Reformation Renaissance/Reformation Baseball Cards For this project, you are to make baseball cards for 5 people that influenced the Renaissance/Reformation. Choose one person from each category below, plus one additional person from any category. For each person, you are to make a baseball/trading card. • On the front of the card include a picture/illustration of the person, their name, their title, and the date of their birth and death. • On the back of the baseball card describe what that person contributed to the Renaissance/Reformation. Cards should contain a minimum of 5 facts/ sentences. Including an additional image of an accomplishment (a painting, building, book) of the person is optional. Renaissance or Reformation MVP (Most Valuable Player) Choose one of your 5 Renaissance/ Reformation figures as the MVP. The MVP of the Renaissance/ Reformation should be someone you think contributed more to the Renaissance/ Reformation than anyone else. In class you will give a 1-2 minute speech in which you describe why you chose that person as the Renaissance/ Reformation MVP. In your speech you should include the following information about the MVP. 1. Why are they the MVP? 2. What are their contributions to the Renaissance/ Reformation? 3. How did their contributions affect the Renaissance/ Reformation? 4. Why are their contributions greater than that of other Renaissance/ Reformation figures? 5. How would the Renaissance/ Reformation be different without the contributions of you MVP? You may use note cards when giving your speech, but eye contact and looking at the audience are important to the speech grade.
