Virgil's Latin on American Symbols

(0)
This resource is for intermediate or advanced Latin students, but will be appropriate and interesting for beginning students if help from the teacher is provided. Students will explore how Virgil's Latin is used on a few American symbols: the great seal on the dollar bill, the state seal of Oklahama, and the state seal of Colorado. Students will learn about the original context of Virgil's Latin as well. Let me know on twitter @gabrieljbaker if you'd like to see more resources like this!

Benjamin Franklin: Satire, Farts, Letters, and More!

(0)
This is a collection of some of Benjamin Franklin's lesser known works, each of which are followed by one or a few substantial questions. Many of the resources are examples of satire, and the questions ask students to explore their satirical elements. Included are a few of the letters that Franklin published under the pseudonym Silence Dogood. This resource is perfect to include in a unit about satire or early American literature. As a bonus I included one of Mark Twain's satirical pieces. After going through these readings and the questions, students will have a better understanding of the brilliant, funny mind of Benjamin Franklin. These readings are difficult, but would be manageable for advanced English students looking for a challenge. Thematic Warning: one of the writings is about farting (really), and one of the resources is about drinking. They are quite funny. Readings include: Benjamin Franklin - Rattlesnakes for Felons, The Speech of Miss Polly Baker, On Farting, A Witch Trial at Mount Holly, Idea of the English School, Daylight Savings, A Warning to Thomas Paine, Silence Dogood Letter 1, Silence Dogood Letter 12 Mark Twain - Investigating the Death of Mark Twain
