Triptych project

THESIS: Ideas from Europe and Asia changed the world by adding to our knowledge and our life expectancy.

TOPIC 1: Left: the new ideas from the Renaissance changed the Renaissance world by the creation of the telescope, binoculars, and glasses. The telescope and binoculars changed things because people could see space and things that were farther away. It made a difference because people could learn about stars and other places, like planets. That impacted how the Church was seen because people realized that maybe the Earth was not the Centre of the universe.

TOPIC 2: Right: The traditional ideas that people had before the Renaissance included scribes, their own eyes, and witchcraft. So back then, they used witchcraft for things like healing. They did not have knowledge of the human body, so they used healing and even magic.

TOPIC 3: Centre: The new ideas from the Renaissance changed my world today by giant telescopes, sunglasses, and hospitals. People can see. Giant telescopes helped people get into space. If I get hurt, I can go to the hospital. Overall, these things have helped me live a better life. In the Renaissance, if I broke my leg, I would have had to just sit at home and wait or chop off my leg. Conclusion: In conclusion, the ideas from Europe and Asia change the world because people created the printer press so people didn’t have to use scribes anymore. I’m glad that I have the healthcare I have.

What I learned I learned: What I learned was a triptych is 3 paneled art that is the same but different. It depicts messages like in the Medieval Period it was mostly religious. Art is supposed to send a message.

How I learned: I learned by taking notes in class, researching on Basecamp and class discussions. I learned about the Renaissance from classroom instruction

What was exciting? What was boring? In my opinion it wasn’t too exciting. I felt like it took too long.  It was fun or “exciting” to Photoshop my face onto a Medieval painting.
