This resource is a reading passage that gives an overview of the Catholic Church including beliefs, structure, and impact on the Middle Ages! This passage is ideal both for a World Religions unit or a Middle Ages unit. You can give students 5 questions or 10 questions to check for comprehension. There are multiple choice and sentence response options, some asking students to cite evidence from the text. The questions are meant to be adaptable to your students and how much time you have!
- Beliefs and Structure (Creeds, Trinity, Jesus)
- Leadership Positions (Popes, Cardinals, Archbishops, and Bishops)
- Major Christian Leaders (theologians Augustine and Thomas Aquinas, popes Leo the Great and Gregory the Great, and monks St. Francis and St. Dominic)
- Effect on Society in the Middle Ages and Today
This should preferably be used in a middle school classroom. I let students do this assignment in class individually or for homework. These reading passages are meant to aid students in reading comprehension, writing, finding the main idea, citing evidence, and building vocabulary.
