Essay about Roman Republic


Known to be one of the most noteworthy civilizations of all time, The Roman Republic is still being talked about to this day, which in turn is about the ample amount of successes and advances that had happened in a short period of time in one civilization.

A lot of the time, two year olds can only say one word at a time, so I do not necessarily think it should be included in a stage that also includes seven year olds (P1). I want to teach second through fourth grade, so my students will most likely fall into the concrete operational stage. Knowing that my students can reason inductively but not abstractly or hypothetically can become an issue because I do not want to make things too easy or too hard (1A). Not all of my students will be at the same developmental area, so looking through Piaget’s stages, I need to find ways to adapt lessons for those students, which I will not know until they are in my class (1B).
