24 Overview: Greek Culture

This chapter introduces students to artistic, religious, and political expressions within Greek culture that developed between the Archaic Greek era to the end of the Hellenistic age. In so doing, students will encounter the ways in which Greek culture both changed and continued as they came into contact with civilizations across western Afro-Eurasia. In addition to sorting events related to Greek civilization in historical order, students will also demonstrate their knowledge of the Greeks by identifying key items from the chapter in the third module quiz. Finally, the module Discussion Board response will measure how well students can synthesize what they have learned, as learners must determine how far the Hellenistic age introduced realism into Greek culture.(1)
