      A Presentation for HIST 4410
      By Katie Stringer
    • 2. Purpose of this project
      Curriculum based-project
      To give teachers something fun and creative to present that they don’t have to plan by themselves
      To inspire students to learn more about Classical and/or ancient history

      Includes TN State Curriculum Standards
      Background information for the teach
      Easy to follow, step-by-step instructions for the teacher
      Primary source images from museum websites
      More sources for the teacher and/or students
      Extension activities for interested students or extended class periods
    • 4. Let’s try this program out…
      ** You will not get the full experience that students who use the entire lesson plan will, because their teachers have 2 50-minute class periods to cover what we will really quickly go over. Sorry! **
    • 5.
    • 6. Worksheet 1
      Divide into 9 groups (2 or 3 students per group)
      Each group gets a photo of the primary source and a worksheet.
      Fill out the worksheet.
      Discussion:Fun or not?
      Difficult or easy?

      Do Worksheet Part 2
      Discussion:
      Fun or not?
      Difficult or easy?

    • 8. More information…
    • 9. Any elementary or secondary education majors?
      If you are an education major, would you use this program in the classroom?
      As a 6th grade student, how would you feel about this lesson plan? Fun? Boring? Lame? Exciting?
    • 10. How is this related to public history?
      Discussion!
      What is public history?
      Why is it important?
      Do you think Public history is applicable to the ancient or classical world?
      What are some ways that we have learned in this class that the public uses (or abuses?) history?
    • 11. If we have time…
      … A pretty funny example of public history/creative curriculum at work – great use of pop culture!
      You choose:
      Beatles (Odyssey)
      Or
      Radiohead (Minoans)
      Discussion:
      Negatives? Positives?
