The instructional activities and critically thinking exercises are very useful. The use of visual representations will enhance student understanding.

I loved teaching these lessons. The role play was fab. I split the class into Sparta and Athens then broke those groups down again into the three sub groups. They then came back together and discussed their ideas. I also finished with A3 posters titled Plato and Justice. They came out really well especially with the top set. Thanks!
