4th Quarter Reassessments Formatives / Summatives that fall during the week of May 20th or after will NOT be eligible for a reassessment due to end of year constraints for finalizing grades. QUARTER 4 In the fourth quarter we will focus on Ancient Rome. During this unit of study we will discover how Romans created an empore that covered much of the Mediterranean world. SECTION 1 - Rome's Beginnings The civilization of Rome began in Italy. Rome grew from a small city into an economic and military power. SECTION 2 - The Roman Republic Rome was a republic for almost 500 years. During this time, it gradually expanded the right to vote. After many years of war and following the destruction of the Carthaginian Empire, Rome took control of the Mediterranean region. SECTION 3 - The Fall of the Republic As Rome's territory grew, the army gained political power. The Roman Republic, weakened by civil wars, gave way to the Roman Empire. SECTION 4 - The Early Empire Augustus and many of his successors governed well. Rome's empire grew larger and wealthier.
