Transcript: The origin of the city's name is thought to be that of the reputed founder and first ruler, the legendary Romulus. It Is said that Romulus and his twin brother, Remus decided to build a city. After an argument, Romulus killed Remus and named the city after himself: Rome. Rome grew from pastoral settlements on the Palatine Hill and surrounding hills approximately 30 km (19 mi) from the Tyrrhenian Sea on the south side of the Tiber. According to Dionysus of Halicarnassus, many Roman historians regarded the origins of the Romans as Greek. Roman Society There are many types of major monotheistic religions today: -Christianity -Islam -Judaism -Buddhism -Paganism -Mormon -Bahai -Atheism -Jehovas Witnesses The Roman Empire Roman Catholicism traces its history to the apostles, especially the Apostle Peter. St. Peter is considered the first pope, and every pope since him is regarded as his spiritual successor. This gives the leader of the church spiritual authority and provides a means for resolving disputes that could divide the church. Through trials like persecution, heresy, and the Reformation, the notion that the church leadership represents the continuation of an unbroken line from the apostles and their teachings ("apostolic succession") has contributed to the survival of Christianity. The Romans had 3 social classes; Patricians, Plebeians, and slaves. The Patricians were the upper class, and they had life well, with some slaves, a villa to live in. They could also vote in elections, or run for office. The Plebeians were the middle class and lived in an apartment building. They had life o.k., but not as grand as the Patricians. They were the working class of Rome. They could only vote for somebody in the election, and couldn't run for office. The slaves were the lowest class in the Roman society. They were forced to work and Romans relied on them for a lot of labor. They couldn't vote or run for office. They also had no rights, but could be released it their Plebeian owner wanted to. They could have a life that was just decent, or completely horrid. The Roman Empire & Present Day Culture The roman Empire believed in a polytheistic religion that revolved around gods and goddesses. Fernando Castellanos Cynthia Guzman Eduardo Cervantes Abraham Mendoza Modern Society The first one is upper class which defines as those with great deal of power who are prestigious and influential especially on the nation's institutions. The second class system is upper middle class that refers to those who enjoy high job with comfortable personal income. Most of them have received post-secondary degrees and they belong to the white collar professions. Lower middle class is the third system that refers to those with college education who usually suffer from the lack of job security. They don't receive proper income also. The fourth system labeled as working class includes those individuals who belong to blue as well as white collar workers; most of them have not received collage degrees (even there are many who have never attended colleges) and suffer from low personal income. Those who are in lower class are marginalized and poor although they work day and night. Though religion has weakened over time, in society it plays a major role, a role of guidance. Without it mankind would be nothing more than animals. Most of our problems could be solved by religious morals. Thank you for your attention! Modern Religion

Transcript: The Class Game Form There are four stanzas, each consisting of seven or eight lines. The poem has a very neat layout and is easy to read. The poet uses a range of punctuation such as brackets and speech marks as well as enjambment to give the poem a more free-flowing feel; more like a story than a poem. The line 'How can you tell what class I'm from' is repeated throughout the poem, but is slightly altered for the last two; first to 'Why do you care what class I'm from' and 'Why do you care what class I'm from?' followed by 'And I'm proud of the class I'm from'. This puts emphasis on this sentence and draws the readers attention towards it. Language The poem uses a combination of formal and informal language to create contrast throughout, exemphasising the poets views on classes and how no class is better than another. The language in the poem is mocking the upper class. It talks about the way they use language and expressions. The poem also suggests that the way in which people speak or the items that they posess can infulence the way they are percieved (>^.^)> Imagery The poet uses imagery so the reader can picture a typical liverpudlian with an average life, fed up of the criticism given out by the upper class. Mary uses imagery in a very literal sense and gives a very harsh, down-to-earth representation. The poem's lack of complex imagery and descriptive language leaves much to the imagination of the reader. Although during some parts of the poem you can see imagery is created in order to emphasise how the classes are much the same, yet they are divided somewhat by how they talk; for example: When the poem says 'Sitting on your patio (we have a yard)? This quote suggests that the patio and the yard are much the same, although not considered so by the higher class, the narrator is questioning why it seems so different, when they are really just the same. This part of the poem would be considered mocking. Response The poem is aimed at the upperclass to make them feel mocked and insuperior to others. The poem is a good representation of normal working class people and their opinion of others who look down at them with prejudiced, stereotypical views. Tone 'The class game' is someone's personal opinion about class. It mocks the reader and is in a sense ironic because the language used is difficult for the audience, at which the poem is aimed, to understand. In some parts the poem is sarcastic as it mocks the upper class. :O By Mary Casey
