of formal education EVALUATION-BASED QUESTION CLOSURE EVENT Imagine it is 753 B.C. You live in ancient Rome and your children are 5 and 7 years old. You homeschool your children because Romans believed that parents were a child's first teacher. Tell your partner what practical information you would need to teach your children and why. Compare the similarities and differences between Roman Education and Modern Education.

Roman Empire had two parts: East and West; the rich (senators, knights, soldiers and veterans) had slaves; wanted for nothing; best education; the poor had nothing; most on public assistance; worst education. Military, economical, and political problems contributed to its decline. Read the quote:
"The teacher must decide how to deal with his pupil. Some boys are lazy, unless forced to work; others do not like being controlled; some will respond to fear but others are paralyzed by it. Give me a boy who is encouraged by praise, delighted by success and ready to weep over failure. Such a boy must be encouraged by appeals to his ambitions."
Quintilian, a teacher in the 1st Century AD. Early childhood education is very important.
Subject matter should be sequenced for students.
Education fosters moral maturity and builds character.
Corrective feedback should be used, not corporal punishment.
Children should be exposed to proper speech from birth.
Different character traits affect behavior.
