Het culturele leven in de archaïsche periode in Griekenland

Veerle De Troyer0 Comments

Doorheen dit schooljaar wandelen we verder door de geschiedenis van de Griekse cultuur. We bespraken reeds de Minoïsche en Myceense pré-Griekse culturen. Stilaan zijn we aanbeland bij de ‘echte’ Grieken, die bekend staan om hun pionierswerk op gebied van literatuur, wetenschap en bouw- en beeldhouwkunst.
Voor de opendeurdag van de school willen we een presentatie over de Griekse cultuur in de Archaïsche periode brengen. Deze presentatie zal aan de bezoekers voorgesteld worden.
Als introductie bekijken we samen welke grote namen tot deze periode behoren. Daarna gaat ieder individueel zich verdiepen in een studiegebied om daarna de hoofden weer bij elkaar te steken en het onderzoek in groep op een creatieve manier als één geheel voor te stellen.
