Brief expository reading highlighting the main reasons the Roman Empire came to an end. Reading focuses on no rule of succession, constant civil wars and the migration of the German tribes. Two versions are included one a long two pages and one a short two pages double spaced.
Reading teaches and explains these ideas in a brief, fun way. Assignment focuses on summarizing skills which can be included or not included as you wish. Here's a tip...burn these reasons into student memory with jumping jacks. Feel free to also use or view my youtube on this topic at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qudwqgOd7lw. Thank you.
