In this module, you have learned much about Greece, the Persian Empire, Zoroastrianism and the Greco-Persian War. Because this particular period of history involved two well-known civilizations that were embroiled in a high-profile war, a plethora of individuals made their mark on history and have since become influential figures of antiquity.
Take a minute to imagine what it would be like if these historical figures had the same relative access to social media that we in contemporary society enjoy today. What would they have to say? What would their Facebook page look like? How would they interact with one another? This must be a person who actually lived – not a god or goddess!
Now, choose one of the many historical figures that you have learned about in this module, and use the Historical Facebook Template to create a fake Facebook page for that figure. Your Facebookpage might be humorous, but should still be historically accurate and demonstrate a clear understanding of the content.
For full credit you must include:
- at least three of each of the following (not 3 total): • activities • interests • movies • TV shows • books • relevant quotes from your figure or other appropriate figure, or quotes you believe would hold value to your figure
- relevant images in all areas that call for pictures
- At least 6 “posts” on their wall that include interaction with three or more figures. These interactions should accurately reflect these people’s personalities, thoughts, hopes, and actions
All entries are based on clear knowledge of the figure.
