4b. Part one Roman Supplemental Reading


ROMAN SUPPLEMENTAL READING 1
WELCOME TO ANCIENT ROME
     Parts of this unit were written by me approximately 10 years ago to tell the story of one of
the
greatest civilizations in history. I used state and district standards, our current text (which was fragmented and did not tell the story of this great civilization but a great number of random facts), and approximately twenty sources. I put this story so that it becomes human. The story is told in the context of an old man's journal, looking back to the history of Rome through the history of his family. I spent approximately four months (an entire summer plus more time doing this project) because Ancient Rome is the BRIDGE  to today's Western World. It is one of the best stories of the Western Civilization.

 


SOME SUGGESTIONS ON HOW TO READ AND REMEMBER WHAT YOU READ…  

If you know you have to read for a course, here are some of the things that you should remember or think about:

  1. How much do you have to read? Set aside a reasonable amount of time to read. In other words, set aside 20 minutes or ½ an hour and make up your mind this is all you will do. No TV, radio, snacks, bathroom (do this before), etc.
  2. Think to yourself, “Self, what am I supposed to learn when I am done reading this section?” This will help you focus on what you are reading.
  3. As you read mentally picture what is happening in your reading.
  4. If you can, read orally. Oral reading incorporates several of your senses all at one time and will help cement the information into your brain.
  5. Take notes in your composition book even if it is not required. You will be shocked how this one step alone will help you remember and understand what you have read.
  6. If it is possible, read and study with a good study partner or group (not one that fools around), or your parents. The act of discussing or explaining what you have read also helps you to remember, learn and understand the information.
