Theology Curriculum >
Theology II Assignments
Students are to come up with and create a new image of the Church:
This will count as a test grade; the more creative and the more time spent, the higher the grade will be.
You will be given one class day to work on this assignment (Friday, April 17). The assignment will be due the following Friday (April 24). Ten points will be deducted for each day it is late. You may hand in the assignment early.
Here is an example from a previous year:
There will be a Theology Test on "The Moral Implications for a Believer" notes on Friday, March 27.
As part of the test, you must bring in an article (either cut out from a paper/magazine, or printed out from online) dealing with any of the 10 Commandments.
There will be a 10 question quiz on the first section of The Paschal Mystery notes on Thursday.
Students will have a choice of two projects:
1) 5-10 minute multimedia class presentation on the Shroud of Turin. Your presentation can focus on any aspect of the Shroud that interests you. Some examples (you are not limited to these examples, and you may combine more than one topic):
2) A 4-page (5 pages for period 4) research paper comparing and contrasting the Passion account in the Gospels with any historical documentation and modern scholarship. The paper must be in MLA format, and can either be printed out, emailed, or shared in Google Docs. Remember, the Works Cited page does not count towards your page total.
Due date: Monday, March 16
Students not going on the March for Life, are reminded to bring their textbooks for Study Hall on Thursday, January 22.
The test on "The Promise of a Messiah" notes will be on Wednesday, December 3.
The virtue for December is "caring." For Monday (November 24), please bring in any pictures or anything else you may want to attach to a poster showing someone who cares for you. Students will be given either red or green paper for the poster in class.
This poster will count as a quiz grade.
Students have three options for the Beatitudes Project.
Due Date: Friday, January 16
1) Written Project: rubric
Students are to find 8 different articles; one on each of the Beatitudes. They are then to:
Write how it applies to the Beatitude.
Write what lesson we can learn from the article.
Articles can be either cut out of a paper, printed out, or you may email/Google Doc share the links to the article.
2) Class Presentation: rubric
Students are to do a 5-10 minute presentation on a modern person who exemplifies the Beatitudes.
You should be able to link them to at least 4, & they should not live in contrast to any.
Students are free to use any method they wish for the presentation; the more creative, the higher the grade.
If you use a video clip, it should not be more than 1/2 of your time (unless you made the video).
You are also to hand in a typed paper with a one-paragraph summery of why you picked them.
3) Video Presentation: rubric
Students are to produce a 3-5 minute video explaining/demonstrating the Beatitudes.
Students may work in a group of up to 5 girls, and may work with students who have the same class, but at a different period of the day.
Students must hand in a paper listing everyone involved in the video and the title of the video.
The date of the Beatitudes Quiz will depend upon when each individual class period gets to that point in the notes.
Period 1: Tuesday, November 25
Period 2: Tuesday, November 25
Period 4: Wednesday, November 26
Period 7: Friday, November 21
Students are to either print out and fill out the form, or type in the answers and email it back to me. All work is due on Thursday, November 20.
