Next up: a lesson plan on Cyrus the Great and the Persian Empire. Like the previous lesson on Hammurabi’s Code, this one includes a trove of differentiated documents.
Let’s start with the do-now exercises, which for this lesson are two Cultural Literacy worksheets: the first is first is on xenophobia and the second is on the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
Now onto the documents that constitute the principal work of this lesson–there are two sets. Here the primary reading on Cyrus the Great along with its vocabulary-building and comprehension worksheet. There is only the slightest difference between the primary reading and this version of it, but this worksheet is shorter to attend it. I imagine (it has been a while) that I prepared the second versions of these documents for one student, but I cannot say that for sure.
If you find typos in these documents, I would appreciate a notification. And, as always, if you find this material useful in your practice, I would be grateful to hear what you think of it. I seek your peer review.
