Philosophers’ Café Task


Imagine this: great thinkers, statesmen, scientists and patrons of the Renaissance all in one room, discussing their ideas.  On Monday, December 17, 2012 this unbelievable event will occur.


In preparation for this great event, you will need to select a Renaissance figure and conduct research into who they really were.  As a historical persona, some questions you need to consider are:


  • Where was I born? Where did I die?
  • When was I born?
  • Where did I live?
  • What were my significant contributions to society?
  • What did I think about the world around me and society?
  • What was important to me?
  • What do I believe?
  • Who are my friends?
  • Who are my enemies?


Come prepared to participate in an active discussion, in character!
