Here is a ready to use translation of Virgil’s classic that will give you a great way to supplement your classroom literature. This product contains a translation of book 12, which provides the climax of Virgil’s description of the fall of Rome. To help you teach the Aeneid, I have provided you with concise summaries of the first eleven books so that you can introduce the story to your students. This product is intended as a supplement to help introduce your students to what is considered one of the top ten classic literary works of the ancient world.
To help make this reading passage meaningful, I have annotated the reading assignment with images and notes to help students maintain interest in the text. The product also contains a short writing exercise that engages the question of myth as history. At the beginning of the reading passage, I have provided a short biography of Virgil and an explanation of why this work is considered a classic of western literature.
