Expanding the Ancient World is a series of professional development workshops and online resources for teachers. Keyed to the NYC Department of Education Social Studies Scope and Sequence, this program is designed to offer K-12 educators opportunities to develop their knowledge of the ancient world and to provide classroom-ready strategies for teaching the past with reliable sources. Featuring inquiry-based workshops, flexible lesson plans, and up-to-date research, Expanding the Ancient World aims to equip teachers with information and skills that they can share with their students. CTLE credits will be offered to New York State teachers.
Completed in the second half of the 5th century BCE, the Parthenon of Athens remains a focal point for the study of Classical Greek architecture. This workshop introduces approaches to the utilization of 3D architectural models within the classroom, using the Parthenon and its sculpture as a case study to highlight the role that this building served in the creation and reinforcement of Classical Athenian communal identity.
Participants will receive 1 CTLE hour.
Expanding the Ancient World is made possible by generous support from ISAW, the Society for Classical Studies, and the LuEsther T. Mertz Charitable Trust.
