Memes and comics can be a fun way to demonstrate important concepts and break up the monotony in the classroom.There is no time like the present to bring some humor into your class.

Note: Nicolaus of Damascus wrote his account of the murder of Caesar a few years after the event. He was not actually present when the assassination occurred but had the opportunity to speak with those who were. He was a friend of Herod the Great and gathered his information during a visit to Rome. His account is thought to be reliable. This could lead to an interesting class discussion about whether his account is a primary source or secondary source.
