We discussed the Fall of Rome in class, but there is so much more to the story than what we were able to mention in one day. John Green teaches you about the fall of the Roman Empire, which, he argues, happened considerably later than you may have been told. While the Western Roman Empire fell to barbarians in 476 CE, the Byzantines in Constantinople continued the Eastern Empire nicely, calling themselves Romans for a further 1000 years. This is NOT a required homework but it could seriously help you better understand the material, so I highly recommend that you watch it.
