Level 2 Classical Studies

L2CLS
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs L. Williams

Classical Studies is the study of civilisations of classical Greece and Rome.

What will I learn and how will I learn?
Although some aspects of the Classical Greek world will be covered, all assessment work is derived from the study of ancient Rome. The course includes an overview of the classical world, Mythology - including Greek mythology; Greek/Roman gods; the Trojan War; Homer’s Illiad and/or Odyssey (epic Greek texts), Greek history (Republic to Empire), and Greek art and architecture. Classical Studies students learn to question cultural assumptions, think creatively, appreciate different cultures and value systems, develop writing and research skills, and to understand the cultural heritage of art and literature over time.

Conditions of Assessment
Both internals are ‘open’ assessments. They are worked on both in and outside of class.

Submitting Internal Assessment
Varied formats including written reports, dialogues, and presentations.

Resubmission and Further Assessment Opportunities
Resubmissions can only be offered once and only when small errors or omissions need to be corrected in students’ work in a short period of time. There is no further teaching available.
