Students read a primary source on Alexander the Great and his victory over King Darius and the Persians at the Battle of Gaugamela and answer 10 questions of varying levels of difficulty. The answers are included. This would be great for a sub!
Sample questions include:
--Who is Arrian and why is his account of the Battle of Gaugamela considered accurate?
--Explain the meaning of "general terror smote Darius."
--What are the two most important points (or relevant points) made in the first paragraph of the second page in relation to the message and intention of the whole piece and why?
--Why do we remember Alexander today even though his empire didn't last long after his death?
