Teaching about the ancient world is my favorite, but it's challenging because of the need to create a reference point in modernity to really create deep and lasting understanding of the material. WWI is something the kids have heard about before, they have a higher level of comfort with it, and that provides a unique opportunity for discussion. Here through the end of the year if fun for that reason. I always look forward to it.
I'm having them read independently then share with a partner followed by discussion. They're loving it.
