Live from Antiquity! [Lesson Plan].
Ancient languages are the deepest root of the humanities, drawing life from that distant time when the study of history, philosophy, literature, and of language itself began. On the Internet, students can return to those times, re-enter that age of discovery, and gain the linguistic skills to help keep the many branches of the humanities rooted there strong and vital. The learning objectives of this lesson plan are: to gain an appreciation for Greek drama through the study of a play by Sophocles ("Antigone"); to explore the cultural and historical context of Greek drama and its role in Greek society; and to reconstruct the experience of seeing a Greek drama performed and share that experience in an imaginative report. The lesson plan also contains the subject areas covered in the lesson, time required to complete the lesson, the skills used in the lesson, the grade level (10-12), and lists of the standards developed by professional or government associations that are related to the lesson as well as activities to extend the lesson.
