What key cities of the Persian Empire did Alexander conquer? (Why did he conquer these cities?)
How did Alexander help to spread Greek culture?
Why did conflict develop in Alexander's empire after his death? Could they have been resolved peacefully? Why or why not?
How did Alexander's Empire influence subsequent events in the lands of the Eastern Mediterranean and the Middle East?
