Female Fury in the Forum: Ancient Rome, 195 and 42 B.C.

Description: During the years of the Roman Republic, women had no political rights. They were not allowed to vote, directly address the Senate, nor mill about in the forum. Respectable women who spent time in public places were frowned upon. Nonetheless, there were times when women used the power of public protest to get what they wanted. One was the demonstration of women against the Oppian Law. Another was Hortensia's speech to the forum. Hold a mock session of the Roman Senate to debate issues of women's rights. Standard 6.7.2

Monsoon Winds to the "Land of Gold"

Description: For more than three thousand years, the ancient world was linked by elaborate trading routes that connected the Mediterranean World with Asia. As caravans carried goods on the Silk Road to the west, a parallel ocean trade had existed for centuries. A complex network of sailing ships, dependent on seasonal monsoon winds, carried cargoes from islands in Southeast Asia to ports throughout the ancient world. The demand for spices, worth their weight in gold, spurred a search for routes. This integrated unit introduces students to the trading networks and geographic factors that influenced the maritime spice trade from Southeast Asia to the Roman Empire and Han China during the period 100 BC to 100 AD. Students work in cooperative groups in a series of activities to learn how the ancient world was unified by this sea trade. Standards 6.6.7 and 6.7.3

Religious Tolerance and Persecution in the Roman Empire

Description: The challenge of forging a society from diverse peoples is not unique to modern America. Almost 2,000 years ago, the Roman empire spread onto three continents and held more than one-fifth of the Earth's population. Rome allowed its diverse peoples to practice their own religions as long as they also made offerings to Roman gods. People of most religions agreed to this arrangement. Jews and Christians couldn't. Learn what happened to these religious groups and offer suggestions to an ancient Roman Emperor on how to "solve" the problem. Standards 6.7.5, 6.7.6., 6.7.7, 7.1.1, and 10.1.1
