1. Attendance/Check HW
2. Journal - "The Legacy of Rome" (pg 11 in INB)
HW: The Legacy of Rome Project (not in INB)
Today we spent most of our time discussing the LEGACY of the Roman Empire. The word "legacy" means what a person or a culture leaves behind when he/she/it is gone. Rome has left the world a rich legacy, and especially here in the United States, where evidence of the Romans' language, architecture, engineering, art, and culture can be seen in our everyday lives.
Your homework for this week is the "Legacy of Rome" project. Details are available in the PowerPoint you can find in the Digital File Cabinet (just like all other handouts and assignments in my class). This homework is due Thursday, September 2, our first minimum-C day of the year.
