An excellent introduction to the Middle Ages, “Monks, Monasteries, and the Middle Ages,” provides anywhere from 1 day to 3 weeks of classroom activities exploring the important influence of monasticism on the spread of ideas and culture during the early Medieval Period. With a daily lesson plan and detailed student handout, this product provides all the information you need to lead activities designed to: foster classroom discussion, encourage authentic self-assessment, help students discuss and analyze new ideas and primary texts, use technology and online resources in a meaningful way. Activities include using Ted-Ed to flip the classroom, a hands-on craft activity (making a monastic rulebook), KWL chart, and Concentric Circle in class discussion.
