The Ancient Greeks Speak to Us - A New Humanistic Approach to Classical Greek and Greek Culture for Secondary Schools. Students' Programmed Text-Level Beta.
This is a student's programmed text for Level Beta of a humanistic approach to instruction of Classical Greek and Greek culture in secondary schools. The goals of the program are to help students become aware of: (1) the impact of Hellenic civilization on contemporary society, including the impact of the Greek language on English; (2) the similarities and differences between classical civilization and that of the present; and (3) Classical Greek as a viable form of communication within its cultural milieu. The programed text is divided into five units: (1) Kings, Tyrants and Democracy, (2) Athens, (3) Sparta, (4) the Struggle with Persia, and (5) the Golden Age. Each unit consists of a series of sentences or paragraphs with information to be supplied by the student. The content of the units is divided between cultural and historical material and material for language instruction. Language is taught by audiolingual methods, according to principles of structural linguistics. The appendix contains an edited English version of the Hippolytus, by Euripides, accompanied by a discussion. It follows the same format of the units, with some of the dialogue presented in Greek.
