Cicero

Last but not least on this cool Sunday morning in southwestern Vermont, here is a reading on Cicero along with its accompanying vocabulary-building and comprehension worksheet.

This is a good general introduction to the great Roman orator. I assembled this material with a variety of uses in mind, including a biographical research paper the freshman global studies curriculum in my New York City high school assigned. But Marcus Tullus Cicero is a key figure in world history, so I can think of a lot of uses for this material. For example, this summer I had the good fortune to become involved with professional development in Debate-Centered Instruction; I might open a unit on debate and rhetoric with these documents.

If you find typos in these documents, I would appreciate a notification. And, as always, if you find this material useful in your practice, I would be grateful to hear what you think of it. I seek your peer review.
