Educational Programmes Organised by Teachers in Different Archaeological Sites

Many teachers working in the province modified and adjusted the programmes for the Acropolis and created new ones appropriate to the archaeological site or the museum they had chosen to present to their class.

The first three papers describe the organising of educational programmes in the archaeological sites of Delphi and Aiani (Kozani) and in the Thessaioniki Museum. The adaptation of the programme “A Day at the Acropolis” to the archaeological site of Delphi gives an example of its successful application to another classical sanctuary. The programmes in Aiani and in the Thessaioniki

Museum were based on the theme “Everyday Life in Ancient Greece”. The next two papers include programmes on the study of classical sanctuaries in Attica, the archaeological sites of Rhamnous and of Bravron. The printing of a guidebook for the Site and the Museum of Bravron shows the extent of the research and the hard work of the pupils. The three following papers present the several uses of the various Museum-Kits in Volos, in Charakas on the island of Crete and on the island of Syros. In Syros where excellent examples of neoclassical architecture are preserved, the pupils recorded and studied classical elements and forms reviving in the buildings. They also did archive-research and compiled a booklet on Neoclassical Hermoupolis.

The teenagers of the last school planned an itinerary throughout celebrated monuments of antiquity in Greece starting from the Acropolis in order to present a cultural panorama of their country to students of the same age from the city of Porto in Portugal.
