Cuneiform and the Epic of Gilgamesh

Standard

I know we don’t have time to formally look at the Epic of Gilgamesh in Social Studies 3219, which is primarily a history course, but here are a couple of videos for those interested in looking a little beyond the textbook. Both tell the story of Gilgamesh (a great hero king of Uruk in Mesopotamia), but the second also includes a bit on the development of writing and cuneiform script in ancient Sumer. Super cool!

  1. I miss your Stoicism writings but I can see you’ve got your hands full with teaching and being a student yourself. Very nice paper on inquiry-based learning, I meant to comment sooner. My son just started kindergarten so I’m interested in new educational trends…anything that will keep him engaged! Didn’t realize you were on Twitter–I’ll follow you. All the best
