It is so rewarding when hard work pays off. I am excited to announce that the lesson plans from the 2015 Monuments of Rome in English Culture NEH Summer Teacher Institute have been posted to the institute website. If you are looking for ways to connect Rome to pretty much any part of your curriculum (at any age level) you will find it here.
As we conclude the Labor Day holiday, and now that the 2016-2017 school year is in full swing, I find myself longing for Rome… the daily gelato, the amazing architecture, and the slower paced way of life. I am looking forward to taking a “walk” through the forum with my students as we complete the Monumental Literacy lesson I designed during the institute. Check out the introductory video – I am SO impressed by the collective work of the team to produce such a high quality classroom tool for the lesson.
I am looking forward to remembering Rome as my students complete the lesson this November. It is also an excellent motivation as I plan my 2017 Summer professional development.
Where will the 2016-2017 school year take you?
