In this performance assessment, students think as a cartoonist trying to tell the history of Ancient Rome through creating a comic strip.
I have used this for 7th Grade World History but it can also be used for high school students in a World History, Latin or Humanities course.
This activity is a great way for students to tie together information from any unit that spans the history of Ancient Rome. It requires the students to think chronologically and use creativity to convey their understanding of Ancient Rome.
Depending on the needs of your class you can edit the requirements by reducing or increasing the required amount of frames, editing the historical content to suit your classroom, adding due date information to the cover page or editing the grading rubric to align with your grading policy.
This can be used in class as a performance assessment or as a take-home assignment.
