Product Description
Students learn about the impact of Alexander the Great as they complete a three page worksheet, examine 5 primary and secondary source documents, complete a graphic organizer, and complete a mini-writing lesson.

Students review historical context of Ancient Greece and learn geography of the Macedonian Empire using a timeline and map.

Then they analyze images to learn about Alexander's military tactics and the Hellenistic culture that was spread throughout his empire.

Students then read primary and secondary source documents to find evidence to answer the lesson's overall question "How "great" was Alexander the Great?", using a chart to organize their information. I often run a class debate using this activity, as well.

Finally, students write a full introductory paragraph with a thesis answering the lesson's question. A handout provides structure and breaks down this process for them and provides example paragraphs responding to the same question.

A complete teacher answer key is included with this product. This packet can be used as a complete, Common Core aligned lesson plan in class or as a sub plan. It provides ideal preparation for state Global History assessments, as well as the AP World History exam. It will take one longer block class period, two shorter class periods, or can be broken up and assigned as homework.
