Caesar is all-powerful in Rome. The Roman Senate is subservient to him. All but the semblance of democratic government has been lost. What is a patriotic Roman to do? This is an accessible and well presented version of Shakespeare's classic play of political intrigue, assassination, and civil war in Ancient Rome.
The TeachWithMovies.com Learning Guide to Julius Caesar will help teachers use this film to introduce Shakespeare and to discuss a critical period in the history of Ancient Rome. The background and discussion questions provided by the Guide raise the important issue of how one determines when the right to resist tyranny justifies assassination.

Learning Guide Excerpt
To demonstrate how our Learning Guides can be used by teachers to improve lesson plans, we have set out below a paragraph from the Learning Guide to Julius Caesar.
Rome grew from a small village along the Tiber River into an empire that, at its height, ruled the civilized Western world. The Roman Empire included most of Europe, the Middle East, Egypt and North Africa. The Romans had a genius for organization, administration, construction and warfare. They were industrious and disciplined.
