Yes, Alix. What just comes to me right off the top of my 'head' or hat
rather :)
-is to do a more multicultural lesson with the students bringing
in different types of hats representing different countries/cultures
either within the US or from around the world. As you are teaching in the
California public schools I'm sure you have an interesting and diverse
student population represented in your classrooms. You may figure this
doesn't work into your theme of the Italian Renaissance well, but hey,
give it a try as an 'add-on' or follow-up lesson.

How did the Renaissance influence/affect other countries at the time or
later? How would students in China, India, Peru, Kenya describe or define
the term renaissance? Other than the conventional Italian period themes,
ideas, art, architecture, etc.. doesn't renaissance also mean
enlightenment, openness, throwing off the old ways; learning, knowledge
and art for l., k., and art's sake ? Have them do a related writing
exercise merging the two: renaissance and multiculturalism It would be
interesting to see what they come up with. I haven't done anything like
this myself yet, because I don't have my own classroom yet.
