In this project, you will choose three Renaissance-era people to research. There should be some commonality connecting these figures (all scientists, all women, all commissioned for art works, etc). You may also choose one modern-day person that shares something in common with the three Renaissance figures.
After researching all 4 people, you will be writing a script for a dinner party conversation among these four individuals. In writing your script, consider the following:
- What interests/experiences do these people share?
- What would they talk about?
- What perspective would the modern-day individual bring?
The purpose of the script is to illustrate the common themes and influences these Renaissance figures had. You may present your script in a variety of formats: Video, iMovie, live performance, Prezi, etc. Remember--the more detailed your research, the easier it will be to write the script!
