A bundle of 7 reading assignments about the ancient civilization of Rome, the culture, the leaders, the republic, and the rise and fall of the Empire. Includes a crossword puzzle based on terms from the readings, and a set of writing topics/essay questions for assessment. A great way to introduce the subject. The reading comes from a really great website, ushistory.org, under their free textbook tab. The information presented is theirs, I made up the questions. This can be done as a web quest assignment using the site. Perfect as a supplement, or as a textbook replacement! Also great as a Sub Assignment. MS Word for easy editing.
