How does Aeneas link to Romulus in Rome's foundation story?

How does Aeneas link to Romulus in Rome's foundation story?

Designed for the new OCR Classical Civilisation GCSE unit: 1.4 Myth and the City Ideally spread over 2 teaching hours, this lesson is designed to give students an understanding of how important both Aeneas and Romulus are in the story of Rome’s foundation. It begins with a slide that can be printed off as a worksheet studying the Homeric Hymn to Aphrodite to determine the significance of Aeneas’ birth. It then moves on to the fall of Troy and students are invited to evaluate how heroic Aeneas was in the episode of his life. This is followed by a brief look at his wanderings and arrival in Lavinium through a summary of Book 2 of Virgil’s Aeneid (included) with some analysis. These two can be printed off and there are accompanying think/written response questions that students can complete. Finally, the lesson looks at Livy’s account of how Aeneas’ son, Ascanius, founds Alba Longa and spawns the line of kings leading to Romulus. Throughout the lesson are links to videos (all freely available on Youtube) which consolidate the learning going on at that point in the lesson.

Fun facts on the Ancient Romans

Fun facts on the Ancient Romans

This powerpoint presentation includes 20 fun, not very well-known facts on the Ancient Romans, on topics ranging from daily life to mythological tales. Perfect for starting off a lesson on Rome as a fun introduction to get the students’ interested. Each slide includes notes with further explanation, so that you as a teacher can introduce the fun fact with a bit more of a background story or answer students’ questions that may come up. These facts are carefully selected to trigger students’ curiosity, and will save you as a teacher lots of time in selecting and preparing! I start every Latin or history lesson with a fun fact like this, and my students love it.

PRIMARY LATIN NUMBERS 1-20 CHALLENGE CARDS

PRIMARY LATIN NUMBERS 1-20 CHALLENGE CARDS

These PRIMARY LATIN NUMBERS 0-20 CHALLENGE CARDS are really popular with my young and beginning learners of LATIN, and really do help to create a lively language learning environment. Children can develop, embed, reinforce and refresh their knowledge of LATIN numbers in a cooperative, communicative and interactive way, independently of the teacher. They have a bonus multi-skill focus on listening, speaking, reading and spelling. They’re great for helping students familiarize themselves with, and develop competence in, speaking, reading, writing and spelling in LATIN in general, and certainly in LATIN numbers in particular. The cards are useful not only when you’re focusing on Numbers 0-20, but also as an all-year-round starter, plenary and general ‘pick-me-up’ activity, as the goal is not simply to learn how to count in LATIN, but also to enjoy working with LATIN, and to feel confident about doing so. The questions range in complexity and challenge, and are great for honing numeracy skills too - especially if calculators are not allowed! I’ve used English language mathematical symbols because learners are familiar with these, and are able to access and engage with the questions straightaway. The resource comprises the following non-editable files in a zipped format: Set of 36 question cards, 4 per A4 (8.5 x 11) paper. Print, laminate and cut out. Depending on how long you want the activity to last for, choose a particular number of cards per small group of students, and place them in a tin, bowl or small box so that students can easily select a card, and then replace when they have answered the question. You can simply place all the cards in the bowl/box and let students work their way through, either in a single lesson, or across a series of lessons. Students do need to remember to file their recording sheets carefully! Colour & B&W answer recording sheet - colour & B&W background answer key, laminate for longevity - colour & BW background - one answer key for each small group is sufficient. 4 question cards template for students to apply their knowledge practically, and to create questions for each other - this is a really challenging and popular activity! Number reference sheet which students really useful as a learning support resource - it’s great as a year-round resource too, which they can put into their learning files/folders to call upon whenever they need it! Colour & B&W background. Please read the TERMS OF USE carefully - the resource is copyright, and for single-teacher / purchaser / classroom use only. GRATIA PLENA!

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

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!”

PRIMARY LATIN ANIMALS CARDS

PRIMARY LATIN ANIMALS CARDS

IDEAL FOR DEVELOPING CONFIDENCE AND PRACTISING LANGUAGE SKILLS IN LATIN! LATIN ANIMALS GAMES CARDS are perfect for young learners of LATIN. They provide lots of opportunities to learn a range of animals, both masculine and feminine, and really do help to create a lively language learning environment. Children can develop their skills in word recognition and recall, listening and reading in a cooperative, communicative and interactive way, independently of the teacher. They’re a great way of introducing the concept of gender, and of looking at the general absence of determiners in LATIN too. It doesn’t matter if any of the animals don’t feature in your immediate or even longer-term learning plan: the card games encourage children to engage happily and confidently with LATIN and to begin to identify similarities with ENGLISH - encourage children to look for cognates and near-cognates such as DINOSAURUS and ELEPHANTUS for example. The games also help learners begin to work out the meaning of unknown words using linguistic as well as visual clues and prompts. For example, can they recognise CANINE from the LATIN word for dog? They may even know the adjective VULPINE - can they identify this from the noun for fox, VULPES? Along the way, children may even get to know some new animals and enhance their vocabulary in English too! There are 80 CARDS in total, which include 2 DECKS of 40 CARDS to enable you to vary and differentiate your games: DECK 1: matching LATIN & ENGLISH cards, with both the picture and the word. The ENGLISH cards have a different frame, with blackline pictures. To keep costs down, simply print all the cards using just black ink. DECK 2: this pack features word-only cards in LATIN, with a matching set of picture-only cards. This is really useful for a focus on word recognition and recall. I’ve included a word & picture reference sheet for children to read through before they play. The sheet can be shared between small groups of children, or distributed individually for children to file in their workbooks or learning folders for future reference. The animals featured are: - bee - bird - cat - cow - dinosaur - dog - donkey - elephant - fish - fox - frog - giraffe - goose - horse - lion - mouse - owl - rabbit - spider - whale The resource consists of two, non-editable files.
