Roman Civilization Constructed Response Assignment

Rome was considered to be one of the greatest civilizations in the history of mankind. Being a predecessor to our modern civilization, it was responsible for introducing a lot of the features and qualities that make up our modern day Western civilization.  Using your notes from class and the Internet, effectively answer the following statement and question:

1) Which feature/quality that was passed from Rome do you feel is MOST important in our modern society?

2) Of all of the facts that you have learned about ancient Rome, which  feature do you enjoy most?

Evaluate and answer each question in 300-350 words. Make sure that your first and last name are present in the post to receive full credit. All responses are due NO LATER than Thursday, October 20, 2011 @ 11:59 pm. All late responses will receive a grade of "0"


  1. 1) I think taxes is important...Taxes are how the members of our society pay for services we all use. Many people complain, and sometimes the tax can be excessive or for questionable reasons, but if you depend on the police or fire to protect your home, drive on roads, send your kids to school, or use any of the other tax supported services provided by our government, then you can't say that taxes aren't necessary. Taxes help pay for what we as Americans use. How those taxes are used is another question.
    2)I like the rome gods... because i would like to have super powers and be better than everybody

  2. Why is everyone having a problem posting again?

  3. Nah, still don't understand...........
