Agenda: Wed. & Thu. Sept 29 and 30, 2010

Quote of the Day:  "The unexamined life is not worth living."  - Socrates
“Even after he has been convicted by the jury, Socrates declines to abandon his pursuit of the truth in all matters. Refusing to accept exile from Athens or a commitment to silence as his penalty, he maintains that public discussion of the great issues of life and virtue is a necessary part of any valuable human life. “The unexamined life is not worth living.” Socrates would rather die than give up philosophy, and the jury seems happy to grant him that wish.”

Learning Targets:
* Use Campbell's 6 Characteristics of a Leader & Pericles' Funeral Oration to determine which two characteristics fit Pericles's.
*  Learn how and execute a proper Socratic Seminar.

1.  Discuss changes to the quiz and test dates.  Get back Pericles packets from yesterday.
2.  Discuss what a Socratic Seminar is.  Divide into 6 groups to discuss Campbell & Pericles.
3.  Debrief discussion as a full group.
4.  Notes Chapter 4 - Polis, Greek city-states.
