The Roman Family: A Bridge to Roman Culture, Values, and Literature. A Curriculum Guide.
Lloyd, Charles, Ed.
This curriculum guide is designed to provide high school teachers of English, social studies, and Latin with the necessary background and investigative methods for teaching Roman culture through Roman literature and teaching Roman literature in its cultural context. The family is used as the focus of the guide because it is believed that an examination of its organization and interactions provides access to Roman politics, behavior and values. The 16 teaching units that are included in the guide are organized into three sections: introductory units, history and social studies (taught through literature), and literature (taught through culture). Each unit contains the following information for teachers: time line, rationale and setting, teaching objectives, classroom procedures and activities, classroom materials, resource materials for teachers, learning outcomes, and enrichment/extension. Numerous sample lesson plans are included within each teaching unit. Bibliographies containing materials on Roman family and culture and on teaching methods also are included. (DB)
