Ancient Greek Mythology This is a comprehensive study of the history of Greece, whose mythological stories and magnificent structures have influenced much of our present culture. The study of Greek culture covers a vast amount of material, and it is difficult to do every component justice. However, this unit will attempt to give students choices so that they may study their areas of interest. Each assignment will include details to assist the student in achieving the level of mark of their choice. The goal of this unit is that students will gain the understanding and knowledge necessary to appreciate the diverse, colourful and eventful history of Greece, and to develop an insight of the impact the Greek culture has had on world history. ASSIGNMENTS Choose one topic from the research box and write an expository essay on that topic. Include pictures, graphs, examples of your findings, a bibliography, and the prewriting process (brainstorming, notes, outlines, writing planners and rough drafts).
