Chapter 9 Section 4 Hook: How many people have already had math class today? Been to science? Gym? Why do we have different subjects in school? Why is it important to know the things we study? Where did these subjects come from? Among the major civilizations in the world, the Greeks were some of the first people to make lasting advances to fields of study such as the arts, math and sciences, and philosophy. What are some examples of Greek influences in our lives today? Brainstorm as a class. Keynote Slides : Have students share some of the answers from their lists. Using Smartboard and Keynote, move through slides that have some of the major contributions and a few examples. Did anyone mention statues and paintings? Architecture? Literature? Math? Medicine? Philosophy? What about from Chapter 8 (students will recall prior knowledge to answer)- Democracy? Mythology? Students can add more examples to each slide. Use about 10 minutes to move through the slides discussing the lasting contributions. Section Notes and Rereading the Text : Break the class into thirds. They will then sign out computers and locate the section notes from their Google Docs account. Out of the six groups in the classroom, two groups will work on the first part of Section 4, The Arts. Two groups will be working on Philosophy and the last two on Science and Math. The students will be responsible for presenting their part of the section notes to the class. Each group has the option of electing a spokesperson or taking turns to read the notes. They also have the choice of using their online textbook or the actual textbook. Presenting: As they are working in their groups (routinely), each group will be told which half of their portion they will be presenting. It breaks down to having about 1-2 sentences of the notes per student. Give students 15-20 minutes to complete the portion for which they are responsible. Depending on time, one portion of the notes may have to be presented during the next class. In that instance, we will review notes already presented, and then have the last groups up to the Smartboard to continue with their presentation.
