Racing to the Finish Line (of the Roman Real Estate Project and Other Things)

Students are wrapping up the Rome Real Estate Project! Today grading began on the research portion of the project. It should wrap up tomorrow. 

Meanwhile, students are working with their partners to plan, outline, and create persuasive paragraphs to "sell" a famous Roman landmark. These paragraphs will include information about the geography and culture of Rome, as well as info regarding the landmarks themselves. For most groups, these paragraphs will be due on Wednesday. 

We'll also spend a little time looking at the daily life of Ancient Rome (and maybe have a quiz on this information on Friday), and we'll look at the causes of the Western Roman Empire's collapse (and what happened afterwards). 

Have a great week!
