All this week students have been participating in a simulations of the Greek Olympics. Each table group is from a different polis (city-state): Megara, Argos, Athens, Corinth, and Sparta. Each polis has different values and strengths that have been largely formed by their geography. Students are also researching a famous Greek person and learning about how their contributions can still be seen in our modern world. The assessment of this project is IB Criterion B: Investigating.
Students got to choose between Black Ships Before Troy, an abridged version of The Iliad, and an abridged version of The Odyssey. Next week they will form groups and dramatize a section of the book, complete with a script and costumes!
