Designed to help teachers of English and gifted learners in grades 4-8 explore the world of the ancient Romans with their students, this book focuses on the important role of the Romans in shaping modern language, history, and culture.

Lessons and concepts within the book are designed to be interdisciplinary. Organized around the Integrated Curriculum Model, each unit focuses on a major concept, with essential questions, introductory materials, lessons, activities, and resources. The five major units covered are: Time, Space, Power, Innovation, and Expression, each with supporting materials on Latin vocabulary, Roman daily life, Latin expressions, mythology, and connections to other subject areas.
