“I purchased Ancient Civilizations - Ancient Rome and I am about to purchase the Ancient Investigations unit.
I found the quality, layout and amount of content extremely good. I haven't taught the Ancient Rome topic yet but after perusing your unit I am impressed with the work you have already done for teachers - ie inclusion of multitude of websites, YouTube clips and the tasks already compiled. It is certainly comprehensive and gives teachers many choices on resources to use to suit their cohort and interests within the topic.
‘What are my thoughts on the price?’ - Well that one is very obvious - we pay up to $60 for a text book from Pearson or Oxford and then more for an e card and I have experienced problems in getting the online games to load ( as have other people) so your history units are great value for money. – Alison from South Australia, April 2013

This term focuses on one of the most powerful ancient civilisations: the Roman Empire. Students will learn about the geography of the civilisation and how it expanded through time. They will study the beliefs and religious practices of the Ancient Romans and discover how these were influenced by the nations they invaded and defeated. They will learn a little bit about Florus and his writings to decide whether or not they could be classified as primary or secondary sources of information. In addition, they will examine the roles of key groups of people within the society and how they lived their everyday lives. After reviewing how to construct and use effective inquiry questions, students will create a research booklet prior to designing and making a ‘mystery box’ using what they learnt about either Julius Caesar or Augustus.

Adjustments for Learning Needs:
Teachers should take into account the requirements for ascertained and non-ascertained students and what their individual plans outline. Generally students with exceptional needs will require a reduction in content, scaffolding of tasks, individualised instruction, a list of websites to utilize during research activities (rather than looking for their own), a buddy/partner/small group for support.
Gifted and Talented students will require a larger supply of higher order thinking activities. These may include compare and contrast or classify as opposed to find and sort information.
