Pompeii Day is behind us, and I’m happy to report the survival of all participants. What a fun day filled with togas, multiple takes and out-takes, scripting, acting, filming, and laughing. Well done to all.
When we return on January 10th, we will wrap up our study of Rome by looking at the fall of Rome. How could the mighty Roman Empire ever collapse? You will be working on your Pompeii Day iMovie. Think of it as digital storytelling. Use all the video footage and the tools on your laptop to re-create a believable and entertaining story of that fateful day in 79A.D. We’ll also get back into our Vocabulary routine, and some journaling. Coming up soon after the fall of Rome will be our in-depth study of the Middle Ages in Europe. The Dark Ages loom.
Happy Holidays to you all. Safe travels and come back to school refreshed and inspired.
