Humanities and History

Humanities I: John

Students in Humanities I class have been learning about the government and social structure in the Roman Republic and the Roman Empire. Recently, each student researched a monument or structure from these time periods that is located within the modern day city of Rome. The students used their research to create slideshows about their respective topics, which they will present to their peers prior to our trip next month. Additionally, our weekly spelling and grammar quizzes have focused on simple and complex sentences and commas with quotations.
