GREECE--SELECTED PROBLEMS.
MARTONFFY, ANDREA PONTECORVO; AND OTHERS
A CURRICULUM GUIDE IS PRESENTED FOR A 10-WEEK STUDY OF ANCIENT GREEK CIVILIZATION AT THE 10TH-GRADE LEVEL. TEACHING MATERIALS FOR THE UNIT INCLUDE (1) PRIMARY AND SECONDARY SOURCES DEALING WITH THE PERIOD FROM THE BRONZE AGE THROUGH THE HELLENISTIC PERIOD, (2) GEOGRAPHY PROBLEMS, AND (3) CULTURAL MODEL PROBLEM EXERCISES. THOSE CONCEPTS WITH WHICH THE STUDENT SHOULD GAIN MOST FAMILIARITY INCLUDE THE EXISTENCE OF THE UNIVERSAL CATEGORIES OF CULTURE (ECONOMICS, SOCIAL ORGANIZATION, POLITICAL ORGANIZATION, RELIGION, KNOWLEDGE, AND ARTS), THE INTERRELATEDNESS OF THESE CATEGORIES AT ANY GIVEN POINT IN TIME, AND THE INFLUENCE WHICH CHANGES IN ONE OF THESE MAY PLAY IN PRECIPITATING LARGE-SCALE SOCIAL AND CULTURAL CHANGE. AN INTRODUCTION TO THE BIOLOGICAL DETERMINANTS (INDIVIDUAL GENETIC COMPOSITIONS) AND GEOGRAPHICAL DETERMINANTS (TOPOGRAPHY, CLIMATE, LOCATION, AND RESOURCES) OF GREEK CIVILIZATION IS PROVIDED. THE STUDENT IS ALSO INTRODUCED TO THE IDEA OF CULTURAL DIFFUSION OR CULTURE BORROWING. (TC)
