Here is the second lesson plan on Rome in history and geography, as above and below, of a ten-lesson unit on Rome. I opened this lesson with this context clues worksheet on the adjective byzantine, with a small b, which means, “of, relating to, or characterized by a devious and usually surreptitious manner of operation” and “intricately involved.” Should the lesson continue over two days (if I remember correctly, and I’m fairly certain I do, I intended this lesson to take two days to complete), then here is a Cultural Literacy worksheet on the proverb (which comes to us, apparently, from Saint Augustine), “When in Rome, Do as the Romans Do.”
And here is the reading with comprehension questions that is the primary work of this lesson.
