This is the "amazing transformation" section.

Lesson Plan Focus
The ideas of the Enlightenment encouraged people to challenge existing ideas and to seek reform. Some rulers adopted Enlightenment ideas to make their countries more efficient and productive. New styles of art and music included rococo and baroque. New ideas, however, brought little change to the peasants who constituted the majority of the population.
