Students read a 1 page primary source on slavery in Ancient Rome (from the point of view of how to own a slave) and answer 8 questions. They make a pamphlet where they educate other Ancient Romans on why and how to have slaves while also acknowledging a different point of view. The instructions clearly lay out the expectations for students. This would be great for a sub and the answers are included where appropriate!
Sample questions include:
--In what ways were slaves’ lives limited, or restricted?
--Why do you think Cato wrote this “how to keep a slave” information this in the first place?
--Determine the importance of rationing wine and olives to the slave owner.
--What kind of Roman would have wanted a manual like this?
Or consider the bundle to save!
