Famous Men of Greek and Rome

Famous Men of Greek and Rome

This 30 week 1 ½ hour class will involve lively discussion, fascinating stories, and geography and root words still commonly referenced  today.  Using a Classical approach and the texts and workbooks by Memoria Press, this 30 week course will take us on a journey through the times of myths and legends, and through the lives and locations of those men who history can’t forget.  This classical method of study will focus on history while preparing your student to read the classics of Greek, Roman, and English literature, and to study and understand the modern world.

We will use the Famous Men of Greek and The Famous Men of Rome texts and workbooks.  Each includes 30 workbook lessons with famous quotes, a drill of key people and places, 10 vocabulary words, 5-10 comprehension questions, and an activities section that includes map-work, discussion questions, and research projects.  Tests and quizzes will cover people, places and comprehension questions and vocabulary.  Class time will be spent on discussion, instruction and comprehension, and activities.  Homework will include handouts and assignments from the workbook, reading the text, and quizzes on Schoology.
