HI101: Discussion Board #1

DUE SEPT. 21 @ 11:59 P.M.

Since the next two classes will look at the Greek world from the Mycenae state to the conquests of Alexander the Great, I thought it would be good for you to hear from Donald Kagan, a Yale professor who wrote a four-volume account of the Peloponnesian War. Below is a link to the YouTube channel on his course.

IMPORTANT: This course is also available through iTunes U or the podcast section of iTunes. I prefer this because I can download the class and not have to be online to use it. Search “Ancient Greece” in iTunes you and you shouldn’t have any trouble finding it.

ASSIGNMENT: Choose any of the lectures from the Kagan course and complete a summary that is approximately one page. The summary can be narrative or outline form. Several of your summaries will be put together as part of the study guide for the next quiz.

Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any issues.
