Theology…the Use of Silence in the Classroom

Immerse your class in the Middle Ages with a thorough history lesson plan. After viewing examples of illuminated manuscripts such as the Book of Kells, they discuss how these were the mode of keeping and storing information employed by the medieval church. Next, young historians create a page of the Bible the way ancient monks would, by candle light listening to a Gregorian chant.

I have used several hands-on lessons that have helped to engage my students in topics that may have been mundane to them. I do not have a text book or resources for many of the topics that I teach, and it is nice to find so many resources in one place.
