Course Methods:
Quizzes will be given at the beginning of each class.  Homework should be completed as it is assigned and kept together with class notes in a 3 ring binder.  Homework will be checked and exams administered at the end of each chapter.  There will be a semester project assigned requiring further research/study on various aspects of an Ancient Rome province.  More information on this project will be distributed in the course of the year.
