This assignment will have you create a city according to your own values and compare it to the cities of the Romans. Here is what you need to do: Make a drawing or plan of your ideal city (it can be modern or futuristic). Be sure to include: A. at least 7 public buildings (could be town hall, school, church, theaters, sports arena, parks or none of these, what buildings do you want?) B.

Make sure to show streets and any sort of mass transit you will have D. Write a paragraph about why your city is the way it is. Compare your city to a Roman city. Make SURE TO MAKE THESE COMPARISONS WITH ROME. YOU WILL NOT GET A GOOD GRADE UNLESS YOU DO! E. Take a photo of your city and your descriptive paragraph and upload to this discussion post.
