A Short History: The Campaigns of Julius Caesar
Chris Allen, M.T.
In this one time course, we will examine Julius Caesar and his campaigns with the Roman legions.
We will explore the military campaigns of Julius Caesar in a short, clear, and concise way. We will look at what Julius Caesar was good at as a military leader and how that could be seen on the battlefield. Additionally we will look at some of his weaknesses and how those were displayed during his military campaigns. The campaigns we will explore are focused primarily on the Gallic Wars and the Civil War that followed between Caesar and the Senate, with Pompey the Great at their head. Through...
Students will be learning about the causes of the Caesar's Campaigns, it's outcomes and changes on Roman society, and why people fought in these conflicts.
I hold a bachelors in history and a masters in teaching secondary social studies from the University of South Carolina. On top of that I hold a teaching credential for teaching social studies in the state of California and have been in public education for four years.
Something to write with and a notepad, or a blank GoogleDoc file, may be beneficial if a student wishes to take notes.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Some discussion on weaponry of this conflict will happen. I will only be offering a description of their power and it will have no graphic imagery. Slavery will also be discussed in the context of what it was, a central component to foreign wars in terms of potentially making money, and will only explore why people were willing to fight for it. Discussion on this era of slavery will not be a focal point.
