|Following the Eightfold Path is at the center of the practice of Buddhism.|
Today's Learning Objective Know the life and teachings of the Buddha.
The Four Noble Truths and The Eightfold Path As we near the end of our unit on Buddhism, we are going to continue to examine Buddha's 'Four Noble Truths' and their relationship to 'The Eightfold Path.' We will begin by watching the video "The Four Noble Truths and the Eightfold Path to Enlightenment" produced by Education Portal. Continue to take notes using your Buddhism Study Guide (A Central Idea and Its Parts).
Now we are going to focus on 'The Eightfold Path' by reading an excerpt from our Social Studies textbook Ancient Civilizations. Continue to credit your sources in your notes. Additionally, make sure that as you take notes on each step that you're not merely copying what the text says directly, but rather paraphrasing and providing examples that are applicable to you. Work to develop a personal understanding of these concepts that makes sense to you.
