Between approximately 600 and 400 B.C., the world saw the rise, golden age, and fall of one of the greatest societies in history: ancient Greece. The ancient Greeks made tremendous lasting contributions in the fields of politics, philosophy, art, architecture, sport, theater, science, and math. Their way of life served as an important foundation for all of Western civilization. This course examines the culture of ancient Greece in a way that enables the teacher to make historical information meaningful and relevant to students. By the end of the course, the teacher will have concrete strategies for demonstrating the lasting impact of ancient Greece on the modern world through engaging classroom activities that bring the past to life.
