The Third Form Connects with Author Caroline Lawrence
by Ruth Koenigsbauer, Third Form English teacher
During March break, Eaglebrook’s Third Form students read Caroline Lawrence’s Roman Mystery novels one through ten. As many Third Form students take Latin for their language, the book is tied into the lessons learned in their Latin class, the history they’ve learned while studying the Greek Gods in history class, and their reading comprehension skills from English class.
Upon returning from the break, students met Caroline Lawrence over Zoom for an exciting talk on “The Mysteries of Ancient Rome.” The Third Formers were captivated by Ms. Lawrences’s pictures, stories, and background knowledge of the First Century AD. She shared her sponge on a stick, along with many stories about its uses, and brought full closure to the unit tied to the Roman Mystery books.
