Today, you will work in pairs to write a script about greatness. The script will feature two prominent historical figures discussing greatness.
This video will outline the task for you: http://www.ldcsb.on.ca/schools/hchs/index.html (look for the video called Greatness under HCC Media)
Here are the requirements:
- You will choose from Albert Einstein, Winston Churchill, da Vinci, Napoleon, Pocahontas, and Gandhi.
- Both characters will offer a definition of greatness. While you don’t have to conduct research about the figures you choose, please be accurate. For example, Gandhi should probably not offer a definition of greatness that depends on conquest.
- Both characters must explain whether or not Alexander the Great meets their definitions of greatness. You should refer to three of the following moments from Alexander’s life
- Alexander’s rise to power
- The Gordian Knot
- The Battle of Issus
- The Battle of Gaugamela
