Ancient Rome is a Notebooking Central booklet featured in our Topic Investigation series. The Notebook Foldables found in a Topic Investigation title are based on content standards that help students develop tested skills or achieve deeper understanding of the most important ideas associated with that topic. Instructional strategies that encourage critical thinking, observing, predicting, comparing, and analyzing graphics are also featured.
The front tabs of Topic Foldables have memorable main ideas and graphics that students can underline, highlight, and enhance in ways that will individualize them. Students interact with the content by taking notes, summarizing, describing, questioning, explaining, sequencing, defining, diagramming, listing, and recording opinions, observations, or data under and around the tabs. Notebook Foldables should generate meaningful discussions and debates that lead to student-generated questions, conclusions, and/or concerns that can be researched.
Topics in this booklet include: Rome's roots in legend and myth; the land and early peoples; overview of ancient Rome; rise of the Roman republic; Roman law and governance; citizens and non-citizens; Caesar; campaigns and wars; triumvirates; the republic becomes an empire; calm, conflict, and control; division and decline; legacies of the ancient Romans; and various timelines of Rome, the republic, and the empire.
