PHYSICS AND ASTRONOMY LESSONS FROM THE FILM AGORA


Agora is a film rich in history and in lessons about science. The purpose of this Guide is to assist science teachers who want to use a larger portion of the film and teach more lessons that are contained in the Snippet Lesson Plan. The first 70 minutes of the film are also valuable for history classes and teachers should think about coordinating with history teachers who can have class discussions and assignments relating to the film.
