Athens Vs. Sparta
By: Siena Zisa and Daniel Parisi
This shows a picture of some sort of leader taking a vote from the citizens. Since only citizens could be male- there are no woman shown here.
Trade was very important when it came to Athens culture. They traded with surrounding city-states, and, as seen here, they did not always use boats.
School in Athens
This picture shows a teacher teaching his class. Since only boys could go to school, the following class is all boys.
Athens was the main educational center of Ancient Greece. Until age six, boys were taught at home by their mother or a male slave. Age six to 14 was primary school. The teacher in school was always a male. Once the youths were 16, their 'basic education' was complete.Girls were taught at home by their mothers or a private tutor. The objective was to prepare girls for being a stay-at-home mom. Only boys could physically go to school, girls could be taught but only at home. Boys' education in Ancient Athens consisted of three main courses: Grammata , Music, and Physical Education. Grammata included reading, writing, and arithmetic.Girls were mostly taught by their mothers in the comfort of their own homes. They learned things like motherhood and housekeeping. Girls were also allowed to take part in sports such as wrestling but parents were afraid that girls would be spoiled if they learned how to read. Despite this some families employed a private tutor, so some Athenian women were very well educated.
