I loved this idea so much that I am using it for my Latin class. Students are to pick a person in Ancient Rome and create a playlist for their lives.

Hi, I'm a teacher but not K12. I really like this idea. So creative. I'm from the U.K and I am doing a masters in TESOL. I'm going to start teaching at a university next month so I am going to use this idea. Oh, I should ask you for your permission. I hope you don't mind if I use it. Have you tried this lesson? How did it go? Anything I should take into consideration when doing it?
