The Renaissance By: Hailey Plano

Marco Polo and the Silk Road

The reopening of the silk road helped spark the Renaissance because people began to trade on it. "Products moved east and west along the silk road"( Holt 298). When Marco Polo came home people became more interested in the culture. In conclusion, people became more envolved in the culture that Marco Polo learned about in Asia.

Rediscovering the past (Greek&Roman)

The Greek and Roman classical ideas helped shape the development of the Renaissance by their artwork and writings. "Greece and Rome artist created pottery, sculptures, moasics, and murals"(Documentary 2). As Greece and Rome made many more art it continued to shape the Renaissance. As a result, Greek and Romans made many different types of art

Greece and Roman sculpture

This is an example of Greece and Roman architecture.

This is also a sculpture made by the Greeks or Romans

Leonardo da Vinci

I choose this article because it explains what Leonardo does. For instance he is a painter, anatomist, and many more. Also he could be a scientist. But it wasnt for a while when he made a discovery.

The images i choose represent the Anatomist part of Leonardo Da Vinci. The second one is a drawing of the human spine that we still use today. The first and third one is showing that if you were to spin in a circle you wont go out of it.


This video talks about Michelangelo and his paintings.

Paper & Printing

The first picture is showing that you put the stamps in order to make words and the you put it in the printing press that looks like the second picture the you do some extra stuff and it becomes a book like the third picture

This had an impact on literacy because it spread information quickly. Also it makes it easier for people to read.

Renaissance Writing by: William Shakespeare

William was such a wide attraction because he was considered the greatest writers in the English language. "Readers around the world consider William Shakespeare the greatest writer in the English language"(Holt 316). His ideas reflected the ideas on humanism because he put humanism on actors. "The following passage reflects the Renaissance idea that each human being is important"(Holt 317). In conclusion, William Shakespeare put humanism on actors.

"It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves."

"To be or not to be, that is the question"

"I love thee with a love that shall not die, till the sun grows cold and the stars grow old."
