Summary
"In this updated addition to the Reacting to the Past family, the classroom is transformed into 5th-century Athens, a city divided in the wake of military defeat and open rebellion. With democratic stability uncertain, students must draw from a wide range of perspectives and original source material to approach issues of citizenship, elections, re-militarization, and dissent. Students also engage directly with history through innovative role-playing games, devised by acclaimed pedagogical experts, which develop leadership, speaking, writing, and critical thinking skills in a fun and unique classroom experience"--
