creating a social media post or page for a chosen revolutionary thinker from the Scientific Revolution in Europe, including their favorite quotes, connections with other thinkers, and biographical information.

discussion an analysis of revolutionary thinkers who lived during the so-called Scientific Revolution in Europe during the 16th and 17th centuries. Students will take what they learn in analyzing primary sources and apply it in creating a social media post/page/identity for these thinkers. For the initial discussion post, imagine that you are a historical researcher helping the thinker of your choice of the Scientific Revolution develop their “brand” and social media identity. Your inspiration could be Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or another form of social media. Begin by analyzing the Primary Source document from the thinker of your choice. Then, do research on the thinker using the web. For your initial post students will complete their “Facebook” pages or other post/page for the thinker they researched. They will be asked to pay careful consideration to each of the following: What would the favorite quotes of this thinker be?
What other philosophers/thinkers would this person be “Friends” with? Think of (at least) 5 status updates that would relate to this thinker. Basic biography information
You can use the “Insert Stuff” tool to post a video (Tik-Tok), links, or example of a Facebook page. If you create something using an external tool or template, please link the class to that in the initial post. Tips: An example of a Facebook page for Ben Franklin is attached for your review to use as a potential model. Be creative, while conveying what was important about the individual and their accomplishments. Were they controversial in any way? If so, how will you deal with that as their brand manager?
