The Athens daily life

Using this link: BBC or this
Imagine you are living in Athens. Who are you? When you choose

who to be,  think about the following:
A female citizen:
  • Are you married or unmarried?
  • Do you live in a wealthy household or a poor one?
  • How does your family earn its money?
  • How do you spend your time each day?
A male citizen:
  • Are you married?
  • Are you wealthy or poor?
  • Where do you work?
  • What goes on at the debates in an assembly?
  • Have you served in the army?
A slave:
  • Are you male or female?
  • Are you young or old?
  • Who owns you, a family or are you owned by the state?
  • Where were you born - in Athens or somewhere else in Greece or in a different country altogether?
  • How did you come to be a slave? What job do you do?
You could try writing about a day in your life in Athens. Perhaps there’s a special event you’re going to? Or you could write your biography; where you grew up; what your parents did; and what you are doing now in Athens. Send me your writing. Link to this activity.
