Part 3 of the presentation delivered at ACTFL 2013 in Orlando.
Read the Introduction to “Classical to the Core.”
This part of the presentation suggests ways to introduce beginning students to the cursus honorum and to Roman roads and aqueducts (focusing on the life and works of Appius Claudius Caecus), using primary sources (mostly literary), which students will begin learning to evaluate for reliability. Note that this is not a ready-to-use lesson, but rather a set of ideas that can be adapted for your class. If you download the Keynote or PowerPoint version, please be sure to read the presenter notes. Warning: The presentation was created in Keynote; the PowerPoint version may be glitchy, but you should be able to get the idea.
