Cleopatra, one of the most powerful women leaders of the ancient world, will be studied in the upcoming weeks of Latin class in the form of a movie.
Latin students, particularly Joe Along and Christopher Peterson, are excited for the opportunity to watch a movie.
“I think it is historically accurate and has educational value as well as quality cinema,” Along said. “It is one of the more interesting stories that is not widely taught, and I appreciate the privilege of watching a movie to learn about such a story.”
“I think it’s good we get the chance to learn from different types of multi-media,” Peterson said. “I also like the opportunity to get another interpretation other than the textbook.”
Latin teacher Virginia Wills also has a positive outlook on the movie.
“The students like to get their heads out the books and learn from other sources,” Wills said. “I also think that watching a movie will be a good way to continue to learn and wind down into Thanksgiving.”
