Rome was like Mesopotamia, Egypt, Greece and Persia, only bigger and better. It is the manifestation of thousands of years of cultural and civic advancements. College courses have semester long classes just on the Roman legal system or the Roman Republic. We are trying to condense all of the advancements from Rome into a three day assignment – if it seems impossible it’s because it is. There are enough Roman advancements to fill volumes, but we ask students will condense this to a 18"x24" poster. This assignments gives students the opportunity to research SOME of the aspects of Roman culture which were advanced for the time.
This lesson can be used separately as a research assignment, or as part of our larger unit on Ancient Rome.
