It's Greek to Me. Teaching Ancient Greek Language and Culture in the English Classroom


 

Master's Thesis from the year 2016 in the subject English - Pedagogy, Didactics, Literature Studies, grade: 9.5, University of JaƩn, language: English, abstract: This research presents a didactic unit based on a set of didactic principles revolving around the linguistic and cultural interrelation mainly between two languages: English as a Foreign Language and Ancient Greek. For such teaching performance, a methodology fully inspired by an eclectic approach is explored, which is composed by principles taken both from traditional linguistic methods and from current innovative approaches. Therefore, this study considers the English subject as a tool which has to incorporate a series of interdisciplinary objectives, competences and contents associated to other subjects. Ultimately, this is the method whereby feasible adaptation could be managed for any kind of contents, competences and objectives, as well as for any kind of subjects, classrooms or factors, either internal or external ones. Consequently, meaningful learning successfully occurs, through which students are capable of acquiring both individual and collective competences, becoming thus truly valuable for their professional and personal development.
