This lesson opens with the crowded and turbulent conditions in the Greek poleis that led to the age of colonization. This in turn set in motion a sequence of events that led to the triumph of a limited democracy in many or most poleis. Highlights include picture essays on Greek coins, the oracle of Delphi, and Greek warfare.
This is a self-contained PowerPoint that develops slide by slide while other notes for the students scroll down the side. It can be run as a timed presentation on its own, presented slide by slide for discussion, or selectivley integrated into your other lectures. There are also extensive pictures with captions mixed in to illustrate the lesson and capture students’ interest. This packet also contains a student reading, flowchart, and the author’s own research notes which contain lots of details and interesting trivia to spice up your class.
