This lesson looks at the process of Rome's civilizing mission during the Pax Romana. After analyzing that process it has an extensive picture essay on Roman cities and engineering: roads, bridges, aqueducts, sewers, amphitheaters, etc. It also has a picture essay on the Roman army and how it defended this empire at its height.
This is a self-contained PowerPoint that develops slide by slide while other notes for the students scroll down the side. It can be run as a timed presentation on its own, presented slide by slide for discussion, or integrated into your other lectures. There are also extensive pictures with captions mixed in to illustrate the lesson and capture students’ interest. This packet also contains a student reading, flowchart, and the author’s own research notes which contain lots of details and interesting trivia to spice up your class.
