Ancient Greece

Exemplary work by World History students at Southwood HS

Citizens of the World

Students have been working hard to gain an understanding of how ancient Greece is relevant to the world we live in today. We've been studying how Greek mythology and legends contributed to their societal values, how democracy developed, and how the Persian Wars affected the people of Greece. We will be finishing the unit with a mock-trial of Socrates and a unit test.

Students were asked to research portions of Homer's the Iliad. Then, as a group, they had to create a Glog, an online interactive poster, to describe a Greek "hero" and his influence on Greek culture.
