The Ancient Greeks Speak to Us. A New Humanistic Approach to Classical Greek and Greek Culture for Secondary Schools. Teacher's Guide - Level Beta.
This is a teacher's guide 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 present guide 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 is divided into an average of 12 lessons, with specific objectives and activities outlined for each lesson. Language is taught by audiolingual methods, according to principles of structural linguistics. Basic principles to be followed by the teachers precede the main text. The appendix gives suggestions as to how the Hippolytus, by Euripides, should be introduced and taught. (CLK)
