Click on the wax tablet next to the question in the lesson to find the answer. Write your answers beneath the questions.

1. Who was Horace’s pedagogue (tutor who walked school boys to school and home again)? Horace’s pedagogue was his father. The father spent a small fortune on his son's education, eventually accompanying him to Rome to oversee his schooling and moral development (my information came from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horace#Childhood) 2. Why did Cato teach his son instead of having a slave as a teacher? Cato did not think it proper for his son to be criticized by a slave or to have his ears tweaked by a slave when he was a slow learner, or to owe to a slave so precious a gift as his education.(Plutarch The Life of Marcus Cato 20)

3. Summarize what Juvenal says about teachers' salaries.
Juvenal basically says that the teachers’ salaries suck. Teachers do all this work and help these kids learn their education well and do things no one else wants to for what parents say, "Do your job well, and when the end of the year comes, we'll pay you for the twelve month period the same amount that a chariot driver earns in one race." (Juvenal Satires 7) 4. How did Marcus Verrius Flaccus coax his students to learn?

Coaxing teachers sometimes give cookies to their students to encourage them to learn.(Horace Satires 1.1) 5. In your own words, summarize a day in the life of a Roman schoolboy. In early Roman days Romans were taught at home boys by their father if the father was educated if not by a slave they were taught Roman law, history, customs, and physical training, to prepare for war. Reverence for the gods, respect for law, obedience to authority, and truthfulness. Later on School began each year on the 24th of March and boys at the age of 6 and up went to school they took with them candles to use before it was actually day light because they started their day before sunrise and went on until the late afternoon.

6. Was public education free and mandatory?
School was not free or mandatory, poor kids did not go to school.

7. What subjects did Roman boys study in grammar school?
The children studied reading, writing, and counting.
