The golden age of Greece : imperial democracy 500-400 B.C. : a unit of study for grades 6-12 by Peter Cheoros( Book )

5 editions published between 1991 and 2012 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This unit is one of a series that represents specific moments in history from which students focus on the meanings of landmark events. This unit explores Greece's most glorious century, the high point of Athenian culture. Rarely has so much genius been concentrated in one small region over such a short period of time. Students discover in studying Greece's Classical Age many aspects of their own heritage. Present day ideas of government, philosophy, literature, science, and aesthetics can be linked directly back to Ancient Greece. Without an awareness of this remarkable heritage and an appreciation for the creativity of the period, along with an appreciation of other ancient civilizations, students cannot begin to understand enduring values and the creative power of humankind. While studying the unit students also become aware of the conflicts in human values that are an enduring and unavoidable part of human society. In this unit students will explore various aspects of the remarkable culture of imperial Athens. They study the origin of Athenian naval power during the Persian Wars, learn how Athenians passed laws, contemplate the brilliance of Athenian imperial culture as reflected in the Parthenon, examine its decline in the Peloponnesian War, and consider the nature of Athenian citizenship and its problems as illustrated by the institution of ostracism, Sophocles' play "Antigone," and the trial of Socrates. A chronological table of Greek politics and culture from 750 to 400 B.C. is included. Contains 37 references. (Author/DK)
