Greek Day focuses on a particular ancient Greek work that all students read in English ahead of time and then come and share scenes, skits and adaptations with each other. There are often a couple of 20-minute talks/presentations by faculty for small groups or the group as whole.
We used the Greek theater for students to perform songs, skits, recitations or creative responses to the Iliad or Athenaze.
