'Aeneid' Mindmaps

'Aeneid' Mindmaps

This revision resource contains six mindmaps, all on separate A4 sheets, which cover the main themes and characters of Virgil’s Aeneid - (Aeneas, Dido, Morality, War, Loss and Family) - and include critical quotations as well as context and quotes from the text. The document is therefore six pages in total, so provides a thorough examination of the text as a whole. These can be used in the study of A Level Classical Civilisation, which is what I was studying in 2018 when I created them. The fact that the notes are so colourful makes them especially helpful for visual learners.

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.

Medicine in History, Monopoly Game

Medicine in History, Monopoly Game

Medicine in History is a fun topic that brings Ancient and Medieval Civilizations to life. Class research the way that Medicine was practiced in the Ancient World before playing the game. The rules that are included are easy to adapt. Lots of classes like to add questions, alter the rules to make it their own etc. Medicine and it’s history are huge topics so extending the activity is easy to achieve through out of class work. This game has been used for 18 years now and I have found it to really engage learners.

Augustus Family Review Game

Augustus Family Review Game

This is a game to teach/revise the members of Augustus’ family. Each card has a name (at the top, in capital letters), and a few words underneath. The aim of the game is for the student to get their group members to guess the name, but they cannot use the words listed in their description. This is such a hit with my class, they absolutely love it and it really works. Great for classics classes at a senior level.

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!”

Classical Myth & Religion: Introducing Greek and Roman Religion

Classical Myth & Religion: Introducing Greek and Roman Religion

Designed with the new OCR Classical Civilisation 9-1 GCSE in mind. Students are introduced to Ancient religion in general and the concepts of Hiera & Religio and the contractual nature of worship in the ancient world. In addition to this there is an exercise for students that is designed to compare ancient worship to modern worship and draw out the similarities and differences. There is a wealth of information contained within. The presentation goes through first the Greek gods and then their Roman equivalents. Each of the god's/goddess' areas of patronage are outlined, as are details about their associated mythologies, stories of origin and iconography. An A3 sheet is included to print and photocopy for students to record details about each deity, first for Greece and then for Rome. Primary Sources and GCSE practice questions are included as are model answers which students can use to improve their own answers. A final assessment task is also included which has GCSE rigour and can be used to get an accurate understanding of student's understanding of the topic to GCSE standard. Throughout, all technical terms are explained in 'glossary boxes' and students are encouraged to make a note of these as the lessons progress to build up their own glossary of key terms. The lesson could be easily differentiated for KS3 pupils by cutting out the GCSE style questions and focusing instead on the stories of each god/goddess.
