OK, last but not least this morning, here is an English usage worksheet on reknown and renown. The first word is simply a misspelling of the second; put another way, reknown is not a word in English.
Renown, however, is, both as a noun and a verb–and the verb is used only transitively. In this English usage worksheet it is used only, in five cloze exercises, as a noun. Given how short this worksheet is, I’ll suggest that there is plenty of room for helping students understand renown as a verb by asking them to write some sentences using it that way.
