This resource is a reading passage that explains how Ancient Athens transitioned to a democracy from rule by aristocrats. You can give students 5 questions or 10 questions to check for comprehension. There are multiple choice and sentence response options, some asking students to cite evidence from the text. The questions are meant to be adaptable to your students and how much time you have!
- Reforms by Draco, Solon, Peisistratus, and Cleisthenes
- Changes in Government
- Impact on Individual Rights and Modern World
This should preferably be used in a middle school classroom. I let students do this assignment in class individually or for homework. These reading passages are meant to aid students in reading comprehension, writing, finding the main idea, citing evidence, and building vocabulary.
Words in the passage: 635
