Ancient Greek Newspaper



The purpose of this assignment is to understand the lasting effect Alexander the Great had on the rest of the world. You are an ancient Greek reporter who is fascinated with the life of Alexander the Great. Now that he has recently died, you’re going to be writing the front page of a daily newspaper exploring different aspects of Alexander the Great’s life. Your assignment is to explore a couple of different websites and research the accomplishments of Alexander the Great. You must have 2 articles on Alexander the Great. You will also research other aspects of Greek daily life during this time for other articles on the front page. It could be their education, city-states, or any other area of Greek life that interests you. Once you have written your articles, you will use it to create a front page of an ancient newspaper. Think about a real front page of the newspaper and use the same things you would find on that to create yours.
