Compare and Contrast Athens & Sparta- Create your own DBQ Assignment- 3 day lesson

TASK:
While working in assigned pairs, you will be creating a Document Based Question essay. This essay will be based on the essential question “Overall, Did Athens and Sparta have more similarities, or more differences?”. You may compare/contrast the two societies in three of the following:
Government Military Education
Social Classes Religion Women’s positions
Means of making a living Culture/Cultural Achievements

Your group will use the resources in the Media Center and approved websites to locate primary and secondary sources that could be used to answer the essential question. Each group will be provided with a Microsoft Word Template to be used in formatting its DBQ. Remember: you must provide enough evidence so that a student would be able to write a fully supported five paragraph persuasive essay based on your evidence. Along with your essay, you will create an annotated bibliography later in your packet. The major difference between a standard works cited and an annotated bibliography is a paragraph that follows each citation giving a brief overview of what the work is about.
