SPQR Online has numerous people to thank.
These people are listed below, in no particular order:
Mrs. Stamm for the
wonderful things she has done for the members of team 26602. Providing invaluable
editing, positive feedback, and being there to help out in any imaginable, Mrs. Stamm,
thanks - a million times over. Couldn't have done it without you.
Mr. Karle and Mr. Dicensa for
taking time out of their busy schedules to sit down with members of Team 26602 to help us
go over sample lessons plans and give us general feedback on the site. Mr. Karle,
you are a phenomonal Latin teacher.
Our parents for letting us
on the computer at all hours of the night - and believe us, it was all hours at times!
You guys are wonderful.
Mrs. Rollins and Ms. Terry,
who were willing to help us out as coaches when we needed it, and gave us constructive
feedback on the site. And we musn't forget Mrs. Terry, helping us to understand the
language of CGI - and to tackle that cursed 500 misconfiguration error.
Sister Lillian, who wrote
a complex, sometimes confusing, but always useful Latin textbook, Our Latin Heritage,
which Latin students everywhere know like the back of their hand.
Mr. Paxton, without whose
influence as a computer exploratory teacher some members of Team 26602 might not be as
interested in computers - or know how to touch type!
The authors and editors of Rome
of the Caesars, an outstanding book from which they were all but happy to
give us permission to use graphics and reconstructions. Thank you for your prompt
Brandon, a great friend
and outstanding collegue, who provided several photographs from previous trips to Rome
that he has taken, as well as invaluable support throughout the Thinkquest process.
Brandon is leaving Latin this next year, and we wish him luck in Spanish - a
language which is derived from Latin, nonetheless.
Michelle, for providing
the good Karma that got some members of Team 26602 though the harder days - and the not so
hard days. Our thanks go out to you.
The Thinkquest teams at Kemps
Landing Magent School, who met with us every week to give positive feedback and
constructive suggestions. Good luck to all of you guys!
Tazewell, who kept us
amused when we most needed it!
And lastly, Ancient Romans
themselves, who built a civilization which has lasted longer than bronze and
continues to exert its far-reaching influence on modern society today.
