SOL 6: The student appreciates and respects how diverse values, beliefs and traditions have contributed to the communities and culture in which he/she lives.  Students will explore sources to identify important values, beliefs and traditions that informed Greek and Roman society, and will consider these in the context of their own culture and communities.
SOL 8: The student values local, national and international heritage, understands the importance of the relationship between the past and current events and the forces that drive change.  Students will explore the political, social and economic forces that can trigger societal change, such as balance of power, distribution of wealth, attitudes towards identity and approaches to cultural diversity. 
Students will explore how the cultural traditions of ancient Greece and Rome have significantly influenced the art, architecture, literature, politics and philosophy of western society.
