What was the Great Panathenaia?

What was the Great Panathenaia?

This lesson has been designed with the new OCR Classical Civilisation 9-1 GCSE in mind. The lesson begins by asking students what they can infer about the Great Panathenaia from a set of images. A table is then included which can be printed off and completed by students as they are presented with the relevant information about each aspect of the festival itself. Students are then encouraged to rank the importance of each day of the 8 day festival in order to make the learning stick and to promote higher order thinking. The next part of the lesson focuses on a range of study questions that are designed to get students to explain what they have learnt. An 8 mark GCSE style question is included as the final study question. The plenary involves designing your own temple metopes/relief sculpture and this is a sheet that is again best to be printed out, completed and then explained by their students to see how far they have met the success criteria/learning aims. Plenty of visual sources are included and each part of the festival is explained in a way that is accessible to all. Students should leave with a comprehensive understanding of not just what the Great Panathenaia was, but also why it was so significant in religious and community terms for the Athenians themselves.

Follow Athena as she competes against her bad-tempered uncle; watch as she turns her enemy into a spider and join her as she keeps Odysseus safe on his remarkable journey home. Prepare to be amazed as you uncover the story of one of the most fearless ancient goddesses, and the tales of a world where humans, gods and goddesses could meet.

'Aeneid' Mindmaps

'Aeneid' Mindmaps

This revision resource contains six mindmaps, all on separate A4 sheets, which cover the main themes and characters of Virgil’s Aeneid - (Aeneas, Dido, Morality, War, Loss and Family) - and include critical quotations as well as context and quotes from the text. The document is therefore six pages in total, so provides a thorough examination of the text as a whole. These can be used in the study of A Level Classical Civilisation, which is what I was studying in 2018 when I created them. The fact that the notes are so colourful makes them especially helpful for visual learners.

The Archaeology of Ancient Greece

The Archaeology of Ancient Greece

Introduction to the project and teaching resources Within this folder you will find a series of documents about Ancient Greece with a focus on daily life and houses. All of these materials are designed for cross-curricula teaching and cover the English, History, Maths, Science, Geography, and Art subjects of the National Curriculum. Please do not feel that you have to use all of these files and the associated activities, as they may not all be appropriate for your teaching or timetable. The materials include both background information to the subjects covered, and actual teaching materials, including various activities. These resources were conceived together with the intention of providing teachers with all of the information they would need to teach a topic on daily life in Ancient Greece. Thus some of the activities will require you, as the teacher, to have engaged with all of the background materials within your planning, even if you do not use them directly in your lessons. For example, presentation 20, which provides information and activities for the Science curriculum on Vision and Light, requires you to have read about Greek houses and the family, which is found in presentations 05, 07-10 and 14. All of the teaching activities have been designed to support the students’ core knowledge and skills as outlined in the National Curriculum. For example, presentation 01 covers the topic of archaeology as a discipline, including what Classical archaeologists study, and where they undertake their excavations. Within this presentation (01) there are two specific activities on slides 3-6. The Kmz* file (02) (for use in Google Earth), and Presentations 03 and 04, extend this topic into Maths and Geography activities that can be done both in and outside the classroom. These activities may be followed by presentation 05, which focuses on the settlement (Olynthus) that provides the basis of many of the other presentations about specific issues regarding houses, daily life and the family in Ancient Greece. Presentation 06 is a LEGO Education activity that is linked to presentations 01 and 05, and develops students’ work in the English, Art and Design subjects of the National Curriculum.

How does Aeneas link to Romulus in Rome's foundation story?

How does Aeneas link to Romulus in Rome's foundation story?

Designed for the new OCR Classical Civilisation GCSE unit: 1.4 Myth and the City Ideally spread over 2 teaching hours, this lesson is designed to give students an understanding of how important both Aeneas and Romulus are in the story of Rome’s foundation. It begins with a slide that can be printed off as a worksheet studying the Homeric Hymn to Aphrodite to determine the significance of Aeneas’ birth. It then moves on to the fall of Troy and students are invited to evaluate how heroic Aeneas was in the episode of his life. This is followed by a brief look at his wanderings and arrival in Lavinium through a summary of Book 2 of Virgil’s Aeneid (included) with some analysis. These two can be printed off and there are accompanying think/written response questions that students can complete. Finally, the lesson looks at Livy’s account of how Aeneas’ son, Ascanius, founds Alba Longa and spawns the line of kings leading to Romulus. Throughout the lesson are links to videos (all freely available on Youtube) which consolidate the learning going on at that point in the lesson.

The Later Achievements of Theseus

The Later Achievements of Theseus

The lesson starts with a task aimed at getting students to recall what they already know about Theseus through the study of his labours. Next the lesson focuses on the three versions of the Ariadne myth with a set of questions designed to look at the myth from their own perspective, but also through the eyes of an ancient Athenian. After this students are introduced to Theseus’ significance as king of Athens and then are presented with an extract from Plutarch’s Life of Theseus and asked 5 questions (can be printed as a handout) designed to get students thinking more deeply about primary sources in Classical Civilisation. Finally they need to consider why Plutarch decided to parallel Theseus to Romulus, even though their roles in terms of founding their respective cities are different. Students then read through the relevant parts of Euripides’ Heracles (included) and are asked 3 questions to answer for each part. Students can be assigned a different character and the relevant part of the play for students is split into six- From when Heracles learns he has murdered his wife and children, to the end of the play. This allows the play to be accessible and a chance for the teacher to address any misunderstandings or misconceptions. Obviously there is a focus on Theseus despite the name of the play, since it is Theseus who proves the greater man at the end of the play. 1 and 2 mark questions then follow based on their learning in the unit so far and finally there is an 8 mark comparative exam question. Students can recall their prior knowledge of Heracles’ association with Olympia from earlier in the course, and compare it to Theseus’ association with Athens. There is an extension task added on which involves students imagining they are at Theseus’ public funeral and writing an appropriate eulogy for him. This is designed for students to summarise their knowledge of Theseus’ life and demonstrate their ability to highlight the most significant moments.

The Labours of Theseus

The Labours of Theseus

The lesson starts by asking students what the lesson might be about based on a set of abstract images. It assumes some prior knowledge about the basics of Theseus’s life e.g. How he was born and who he was. Included in the powerpoint which can be printed A3 or A4 is a worksheet which students can fill in with information about each of Theseus’ labours as you go through them on the board. Students are introduced to the kylix depicting the labours of Theseus housed in the British Museum. As a prescribed source for the GCSE, it is crucial that students know which labour is depicted where on the kylix itself. This powerpoint provides rotated and enlarged versions of each depiction at the appropriate points in the lesson. This ensures that students are constantly thinking not only about Theseus’ labours, but also how they are depicted on the kylix at all times. All the information students need to know about each of Theseus’ labours for the new Classical Civilisation OCR 9-1 GCSE is included. Having already studied Heracles earlier on in the course. There are questions to prompt comparisons with Theseus’ contemporary hero – in particular in the labours that they undertake and the way in which they go about doing them. This comparative thinking will help with the exam question at the end of the lesson. There is a link to a short animation (appropriate for all ages) included to his final labour: the defeat of the Minotaur which students can use to enhance their understanding of this story. The kylix is then referred back to as students are asked to contemplate how appropriate each depiction on the kylix is based on what they know about their labour, followed by a ranking and justification task. Finally, an 8 mark comparison question is included. It is designed to take them 8 minutes as per the timings on the paper at GSCE, and as a support there are sentence starters and helpful tips available to those that might need it. An extension task is also included which encourages the comparison with Heracles.

Classical Myth & Religion: Introducing Greek and Roman Religion

Classical Myth & Religion: Introducing Greek and Roman Religion

Designed with the new OCR Classical Civilisation 9-1 GCSE in mind. Students are introduced to Ancient religion in general and the concepts of Hiera & Religio and the contractual nature of worship in the ancient world. In addition to this there is an exercise for students that is designed to compare ancient worship to modern worship and draw out the similarities and differences. There is a wealth of information contained within. The presentation goes through first the Greek gods and then their Roman equivalents. Each of the god's/goddess' areas of patronage are outlined, as are details about their associated mythologies, stories of origin and iconography. An A3 sheet is included to print and photocopy for students to record details about each deity, first for Greece and then for Rome. Primary Sources and GCSE practice questions are included as are model answers which students can use to improve their own answers. A final assessment task is also included which has GCSE rigour and can be used to get an accurate understanding of student's understanding of the topic to GCSE standard. Throughout, all technical terms are explained in 'glossary boxes' and students are encouraged to make a note of these as the lessons progress to build up their own glossary of key terms. The lesson could be easily differentiated for KS3 pupils by cutting out the GCSE style questions and focusing instead on the stories of each god/goddess.

Ancient Greece Class Assembly **Fully Editable**

Ancient Greece Class Assembly **Fully Editable**

This play script was written for a year 6 class. There are some concepts and words that make it appropriate for older grades as well. Some amendments might be necessary to use for younger years. There are phonetic spellings included beside certain words to help with pronunciation. The script is written with 25 speaking parts however these can easily be shared to make more parts (although there are plenty of non-speaking actions needed on stage). Lines can also be easily merged together to cater to smaller groups. Currently there are 8 narrator parts, 12 Greek gods and 5 villagers. It should take between 15-25 minutes to perform. The first scene of the play reviews some basic geographical facts and examines ancient maps versus today's. Things we have gained from ancient Greek culture such as democracy and philosophy are touched on as well. The second scene is a series of tableaus (students form a still image with their bodies, as if creating a snapshot or picture of an event) that help demonstrate just how long ago 'ancient Greece' was, by showing significant events in history. The third scene introduces the 12 main gods who lived on Mount Olympus. Students have the opportunity to present any class work that represents the gods. A shield designed to represent each one or a poster that highlights each gods power or realm. The final scene is the only 'acting out' scene and it is a retelling of the myth about how Athens became Athena's city. This resource is a word document and is fully editable. Hope your class enjoys it as much as mine did!

Myth ad Religion: Foundation Stories, exam-style questions and evaluation

This bundle of lessons surrounds the Foundation Stories section of the GCSE Specification and would last 2-3 lessons. First, it looks at the one possibility of the foundation of Athens - the competition between Poseidon and Athena. Then, we look at the Myth of Theseus. I have included the Kylix as indicated by the OCR text books and a corresponding set of exam-style questions. The tasks involve pupils considering the tasks of Theseus and analysing the Kylix for the presentation of the myth upon it. (You will need to accompany thins set of lessons with the textbook's written coverage of the tasks of Theseus.) Finally, there is a task which encourages pupils to compare Heracles and Theseus - who is the greatest Hero and why?
