The Romans: A Day in the Life
Junior High Roman History is being offered this spring by Mr. Rolling via Homeschool Connections. This course provides a narrative history of the Romans from their modest beginnings through their rise and, finally, to their fall. The focus will be on providing as multifaceted an understanding of Roman life at all levels of society as is possible; hence, the writings, foods, games, and ideas of the Romans will all find their places in the course. Some Latin memorization may be incorporated into the course, depending on the abilities of the students. Homework: Readings, activities, maps, timelines, and study questions may be assigned. An independent research project will be required as an end of the semester assignment.
