Description

This dynamic presentation tells the story of the Birth of Democracy and provides visuals, video links, guided notes, and reflection questions to keep your students engaged for the entire lesson.

Greece is the birthplace of democracy and the story of that development is fascinating. Seen as more than just a right by the citizens of Athens, it was a duty and it was something they were willing to die for.

This lesson covers the following topics:

♦ Early Government in Greece

♦ The influence of Greek Hoplites on government

♦ Draco and Athens' Code of Law

♦ Solon and the council of 400

♦ Pisistratus and Hippias

♦ Isagoras and the Spartan Invasion

♦ Cleisthenes and the birth of democracy

♦ Ostracism

Two variations of this lesson!

The first is a PowerPoint for those teachers who know the topic and want to guide their students through the material. This class takes approximately 75-minutes. There are six links to Youtube in the presentation. The videos total ~ 24 minutes. Youtube links are checked weekly and updated when necessary. There are handouts for note taking along with reflection questions included with this presentation.

The second version consists of the information and images on worksheets that the students can read through at their own pace. This is best done if laptops or tablets are available for the class or for online learning. This version comes with more indepth questions that the students can work through at their own pace.
