Roman Empire, The: In the First Century

This informative website, based on a PBS series, introduces high school students to the Roman Empire in the first century. It provides an overview of the period, links to other resources, and eight lesson plans for educators, complete with downloadable documents. Special features include a digital timeline, Augustan family tree, online games, and a virtual library containing excerpts of works by authors of the period. The resource can be used by students as part of a web quest or for independent research projects. Teachers can locate information on specific topics and the lesson plans are flexible enough to accommodate different academic levels and learners of different ages/backgrounds.
