Teaching Ancient History Today. ERIC Focus Reports on the Teaching of Foreign Languages, Number 22.
Pohlsander, Hans A.
This report presents a rationale for the study of ancient history emphasizing the interrelationship of all periods of history and the arbitrary nature of the subject's division into temporal or geographical segments. Pointing out that significant discoveries are constantly being made, the author stresses the importance of the classics teacher's acquaintance with current literature on this and other relevant topics. The paper discusses the relationship of archaeology, chronology, geography, languages, and the arts with ancient history and suggests audiovisual aids and other source materials for use in the classroom. Concluding remarks focus on the classical languages vis-a-vis ancient history. An annotated bibliography is included. (CM/RL)
