For at least three weeks, we've been studying Ancient Roman civilization. for two days, we've prepared for the big test via a study guide. Today, we had the end-of-unit test. One of my "star" students was struggling with one of the essay questions. I prompted her,
"Come on. You can get this. What was one big thing that the Romans had to trade that everyone else needed?"
Um...no. (I was going for "salt.")
I pressed. "Nope. Think really hard. What natural resource did they have a lot of that was very important and they could trade?"
