  • The idea that people were citizens with rights and responsibilities set Greece apart from other parts of the world.

  • The Greeks began to give ordinary people the right to take part in government affairs.

  • Once a year in ancient Athens, the city came together to honor her sons who had fallen in battle.

  • In 431 B.C., that duty fell to Pericles

Pericles s funeral oration1
Pericles's Funeral Oration

  • The famous Greek general, Pericles, gave a public speech honoring Athenians who died in war. This famous speech is called his funeral oration. This speech talked about Athenian patriotism and government.

  • Fortunately, this speech was written down. It told scholars a great deal about life and events in ancient Greece.

  • Pericles was a great believer in democracy which we will talk more about on Thursday. Moreover, his ideas, and his speech led to democracy being possible

  • It began in a small school in the heart of Los Angeles. Students from the surrounding neighborhoods came together to change the course of their education. Parents who cared deeply for their students sought to give them a better life. Students showed up ready to work hard. Under the leadership of dedicated administrators like Ms. Vallejo and a group of hard working teachers, students learned that their education was in their hands. But why? Why would this be important? Students like Armando had excellent attendance and Daisy came prepared with a good attitude. Students like Joanna and Irvin made flashcards and Kyerah took initiative to do well and ask questions. Students, parents, and teachers were committed to students success. Because of this I am confident that you can not only succeed here, but in your high school, college and future careers!
