Monastic Life and the Rule of St. Benedict - 2/13/2017

HOMEWORK DUE TOMORROW:
Read Chapter 14, Sections 1 and 2. Prepare for a possible open-note reading quiz tomorrow.
    TODAY'S AGENDA:
    1. Remain silent until Mr. Ippolito turns the lights on.

    2. Get a handout titled - "The Rule of St. Benedict." It is on top of the Chromebook cart.

    3. You will watch a short video clip FIRST before doing the "Rule of St. Benedict" activity. Mr. Ippolito will put that video up on the screen. It is a clip from the History Channel special, "The Dark Ages."


    4. Once you have finished the video, you may then open your Chromebook and read the Rule of St. Benedict.  You will see a list of 72 rules. They were the rules that Benedictine monks had to follow. This is what you are reading to complete the assignment. Read the assignment, then complete "The Rule of St. Benedict" assignment.


    IF YOU FINISH EARLY

    The moveable-type printing press wasn't invented until 1450, so monks would create books by hand. It's amazing! Watch this video to learn more (on mute, or with your own headphones):
