Section 2 Enlightenment Ideas Spread

1. 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.

2. In-class Instruct
Write important terms on the board:

enlightened despots barogque rococo

Circle each term. Now, ask students to list brief facts about each. These facts are then a summary of the Enlightenment.
