Dear Humanities Kids,

If you missed today, we completed the following:

Plato's words have merit and validity, don't you think? What does he mean? How can a person be friendly to everyone; yet, not actually have any friends? Do you know people like this? Explain?

2. We completed discussing the Hellenistic time period in relationship to Greek sculpture.

3. We also discussed the significance of Alexander, the Great! You can decide if you think he was "great" or not?????

4. We then discussed Sparta and Olympia.
Guys, you SHOULD NOT use your notes for this. Clearly we have an integrity issue here, as I am not sitting next to you at the moment. Use the practice quiz as a pre-test! Cut and paste the following questions into a Word document, and then respond to them from there. Good Luck!

1. What type of artwork is this piece? What do we know about the culture that created it?

2. Identify which of the three time periods this statue represents.
3. This form of art is given what "title" or name?
4. What is the female title for this type of statue?
. Identify the three architectural styles (in any order) indicated in the above image?
5. _______________________ 6.______________________ 7._____________________
8. Who was able to compete in the Olympics?
9. Explain the dichotomy between Athens and Sparta?
10. How did Athens receive its name? (You need to mention two gods for your response.)
