Part of my Warriors of God series, this short historical fiction story details the Roman gladiatorial games, the reasons the Roman Empire persecuted Christians and gives insight to the crazed Emperor Nero of Rome. This story is inspired by the movie Gladiator and my own research.
Meant to engage reluctant readers, the story and multiple choice questions to follow should take the average middle school reader about 25 minutes to complete. There are ten multiple choice questions that assess comprehension and literary terms. Thank you.
