The Ancient Greeks Speak to Us: A New Humanistic Approach to Classical Greek and Greek Culture for Secondary Schools. Teacher's Guide-Level Alpha.
Masciantonio, Rudolph; And Others
A humanistic approach to the study of classical Greek and Greek culture at the secondary school level is detailed in this guide. References to the student programed text and other multisensory instructional materials used in the system focus on instructional objectives geared to students who are not necessarily college-bound. The standard Attic dialect is taught in units of instruction organized by theme: (1) an introduction to Greek, (2) geography of the Greek world, (3) everyday life among the Greeks, (4) the alphabet, (5) ancient Crete, (6) Troy, and (7) Greek gods and heroes. Language instruction is patterned after structural linguistic theory and makes use of pattern drills and programed instruction. The culture lessons, to be taught in English, are stated in specific objectives referred to in enumerated frames. Appendixes contain additional, enrichment work and bibliography for teachers. (RL)
