PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a thought-provoking lesson combining philosophy and history, which could be used during a unit on the Roman Empire. Students are given a short background on Aurelius and the basic tenets of Stoicism, followed by a chart which breaks down what humans can and cannot control. Stoics put an emphasis on the idea of controlling what they can and accepting what they cannot. Students then will analyze several quotes credited to Aurelius (from his work "Meditations") and put the quotes in their own words as well as explain how they connect to the idea of what humans can and cannot control. Finally, students are then asked to apply Stoicism to their own lives. *The last page of the .pdf are just teacher notes for how to organize the lesson.
