Reading in progress … Brucia´s “To Be a Roman”

19 May 2020

twitter: @eugenio_fouz


Splendid manual on Roman Culture.
A good companion for teachers of Latin.
In its first chapters deals with tria nomina, types of marriages and houses among other points. This book provides exercises to work on the topics dealt in lessons. Of course, there are some illustrations of bedrooms (cubicula) in semidetached houses (domus).
A curiosity about tria nomina was the assumption that women didn´t have praenomen as a rule. Every free-born male had at least praenomen and nomen (first name and last name)

Extra something

Extra something


We, as teachers, might improve the active participation of our students in the classroom by means of certain strategies. We could teach something new on the blackboard, write some rare expressions (idioms, false friends, abbreviations), get our pupils involved in a singular practice such as a specific role play activity, e.g.: a phone conversation with a famous movie star, or just provide them with a pack of new words.

We might as well suggest they copy a wordlist on their notebooks, turn some sentences into the negative or the past simple tense, et cetera.

These could be the extra something to those students coming to the classroom in any of our subjects, namely English language, Latin, Ethics or whatever
