Latin Quotes with English translations, including full grammatical explanations and background info

This set includes twelve Latin quotes, by both famous and lesser known authors, with their English translations, to use as display posters in the classroom, for example when teaching a unit on Romans or Ancient History or in any Latin class. After each poster quote I have included some information for the teacher to introduce the new quote to the classs, including a full grammatical Latin explanation of the quote, background information on the author and time, and a section on the meaning and interpretation of this specific quote so students know how and when they could use it in daily life. I use posters like these every week all school year long in my classes, and students collected them in their books and looked forward to the new quote each week. They starting using the most popular quotes in their conversations with each other, and often told me after a test when asked how it went, “oh, veni, vidi, vici!”

Classics Wordsearch Classical Literature Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

Classics Wordsearch Classical Literature Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

Wordsearch on the theme of 'Classics'. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

What signs of 'greatness' were there in Alexander's early life?

What signs of 'greatness' were there in Alexander's early life?

This lesson gives an introduction to Alexander the Great, his background and early life. It begins with a map of his empire to give students an idea of the scale of his later conquest and leads with a comprehension on the story of his taming of Bucephalus according to Plutarch (adapted so secondary students can understand it). It is then useful to show the scene from Alexander (2004) a link to which is attached and compare the interpretations of the event. Another scene from Alexander the Great (1956) is linked to and a discussion and explanation of the influence of Aristotle on his life can then ensue. Students are then introduced to his character at the beginning of his campaign (Plutarch again!) with the idea being that they need to understand that he was literate and intelligent. Students leave with an understanding that, like his hero Achilles, he died young. A 'challenge' article on his life from the Telegraph (adapted) is also included.
