Above is a link to a webquest that I made in Weebly.  The webquest examines many different aspects of culture in Ancient Rome.  However, it is not fact-finding about Roman Emperors, like most lessons on this subject.  Instead, it is a deeper look into the socioeconomic, familial, and emotional traits of the individuals in that culture.  The cognitive and affective domains of learning will be tested and expanded during this lesson.  While students are still exploring and trying to understand the basics of Roman culture, they are also relating to the subject in a whole new way.   This exercise will have them analyzing Roman culture and constructing an identity within that culture.  At the end of the lesson, students will evaluate Rome as an observer and an imaginary insider.  And that is exactly where I’d place this lesson on Bloom’s Taxonomy- evaluate.
