Product Description

This is a group role-playing project that will demonstrate who the Ancient Athenians were (class structure), what kind of democracy they created (political structure), and how fair and equitable their society was. This file contains the following:

  1. An introduction page for teachers
  2. The project guidelines for students, providing an outline of each step of the process along with descriptors of what successful completion of each step looks like
  3. A project proposal form, to be signed by student & teacher before each group begins their project
  4. A graphic organizer for tracking references, as students complete their research
  5. A detailed rubric for marking (which correlates with Alberta Social Studies and Language Arts curriculum)
  6. A detailed reflection form for students to complete after the projects are completed

The project focuses on three main aspects of Ancient Athenian society:

  • The class structure of Ancient Athens (Slaves, Metics and Citizens)
  • The political structure of Ancient Athens (the first democracy)
  • The fairness and equity (or lack of) that each class of people experienced

This project is very open-ended, as it does not ask students to answer these essential questions through a particular medium. Instead, groups may choose their own medium through which to demonstrate their understanding. Groups gain a deeper understanding of Ancient Athens as they make their way through this project.
