What is classical studies about?

Classical studies is the study of the people, places, and events of the classical world, and their influence on the modern world. Classical studies is an interdisciplinary subject: students engage with the literature, art, history, science, technology, religion, and philosophy of ancient Greece and Rome.

Students explore community, cultural identity, values, and perspectives and think critically about human behaviour and relationships in order to appreciate the civilisations of ancient Greece and Rome, understand the past and the present, and to imagine possible futures.

What is the purpose of the Classical Studies Portal?

This is a place where teachers and students can co-construct content and lessons. Teachers and students are encouraged to edit current pages and add new units / lessons / content. At the moment I have only added the three units I am teaching this year, but there is plenty of room for other units to be added.
