This is an original 4000-word creative piece of work written by me for a high school course I taught several years ago, and you won't find it anywhere else on the Internet.
These are complete and thorough background and lecture notes for teaching high school students about the Fall of Rome. Based on serious research and quoting (with bibliography) several academic sources and a book by renowned historian Michael Grant, this document presents Rome's fall in a logical, interesting, and very structured way so students (and you) can understand this major historical topic. Four commonly-held theories about Rome's fall are explained and evaluated by the author in addtion to looking at Grant's seminal work.
This an ideal topic and lecture for teaching note-taking skills to high school students in history classes. Includes a brief quiz to give at the end of the topic.
