Item description for The Greenleaf Guide to Famous Men of Rome (Greenleaf Guides And Famous Men) by Cyndy Shearer...
Overview Just as the Bible uses the stories of the Patriarchs, Judges, Prophets, and Kings to teach us, so we hope that our history units on Israel, Egypt, Greece, Rome and the Middle Ages, the Renaissance and the Reformation will be useful in teaching your children about the traits God desires. The Greenleaf Guides and the companion titles in the Famous Men series emphasize biography, so that you can focus on issues of character and the consequences, both temporal and eternal, of the choices which historical figures made so that we-and our children-- can learn to make wise choices in our lives. The stories can be read aloud to younger students, or read independently by older students, either as the focus of their study or as a supplement. Instructors will find them useful with students from second grade through junior hight.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Greenleaf Guide to Famous Men of Rome?
Excellent for teaching older (and some younger) children Apr 18, 2001
Extremely helpful resource for teaching my children history. Our children are 13, 12 and 8, and I used the discussion questions pretty much straight out of the book for the older two. For the younger one, I wrote fewer, more concrete questions (such as, "how old was [so and so] when he moved to [wherever]). Other than that, the most useful feature of the Guide was the list of extra readings and resources for each lesson. The one downside with this Guide, and true of the others as well, is the lack of scheduling help (how many lessons per week, how to group them, and so on). I found some great help on the Greenleaf Website. The editor, Rob Shearer, posts the scheduling of his own classes. Take a peak at his Ancient Civilization schedule yourself ....
"Must Have" Guide to the Famous Men of Rome Sep 6, 2000
This study guide is an indispensable companion to Famous Men of Rome. The guide gives questions for every chapter, vocabulary words, ideas for projects, and suggestions for great books to expand the study. Our family has loved our "Famous Men" studies.
Famous Men of Rome Jun 6, 2000
This book tells the story of Rome through individuals. I believe that by teaching history through real people, the children will be able to retain more of what they learn. I found the reading about a 5th -6th grade level, but this would also be usable for the high school level. This book also has a study guide that has questions and vocabulary as well as activities.
