Ancient Greek City States Lesson

Rating: 4 stars
Used in Course: Not used in course
Submitted by: Amanda Kain (Teacher (K-12)), Dec 13, 2011

This lesson has a clear problem or need and real-world performance.  I like that students get to choose their final assessment.  Although, it would help if there was a rubric to guide students to what they need to have in their final product.  The guiding questions are very helpful to use throughout the lesson to help students along.  Although, it is not clear how to assess the students throughout the lesson.  The method is very clear and easy to follow.  I like the changes you made after the evaulation.  Showing the clip of the movie 300 is a great way to engage the students.  The meaningfulness is also a positive in this lesson.  It is very important for students to learn about other cultures because it makes them well-rounded citizens.  The age, skill level, and use of technology are all appropriate to the lesson.  The set of essential content could be more specific about what exactly they will learn about Ancient Greece.  This could be included on a rubric.  This is a great lesson that I would definitely use if a little more detail was added and a rubric was made.
