Ancient Greece: Pericles' Funeral Oration Analysis Activity

Ancient Greece: Pericles' Funeral Oration Analysis Activity

This activity is meant to give students experience interacting with and interpreting a primary source that demonstrates the beginnings of democratic thought in Ancient Greece. This makes an especially good activity early in the school year, but could be used any time. Students read each excerpt, and - with the help of the teacher, a dictionary, or the internet - interpret the meaning of Pericles’ speech. They are then required to condense their interpretation into a four-word summary. Works great as a discussion-based activity or individual work. This lesson is classroom tested and fully customizable.

Who was Alkman? Why was his poetry so very 'un-Spartan'?

A Spartan poet? It almost seems unbelievable that a society renowned for its excessive militarism should have a poet, especially one who wrote of love and the colour of women's hair, the beauty of wildflowers and dancing. Yet Alkman's poems inspired the Spartans so much that they were spoken by bards in the syssition and at religious festivals where young girls would dance to his words. This source-based homework task is designed for students of the NSW Ancient History Syllabus for the Australian CurriculumHigher School Certificate courseHistorical SocietiesSpartan Society to the Battle of Leuctra
