When teaching about ancient Rome and Julius Caesar, this activity gives students the opportunity to evaluate his role as dictator of Rome. Guided questions challenge students to respond to information by applying new concepts and evaluating his role in creating the Roman Empire.
Holding a Socratic Seminar discussion with this activity will encourage students to explore beyond the text and questions.
This activity includes:
-a document for reading and evaluating Julius Caesar's actions from two perspectives: a Plebeian and a Patrician
-guided questions for understanding the content, forming comparisons and contrasts, as well as fostering critical thinking skills such as application and evaluation.
-content to conduct a Socratic Seminar
-21st Century Skills: reading, critical thinking, and collaboration
