Class Experience

Students will have a working knowledge of not only the history of Pompeii, Naples, and the surrounding cities, both ancient and modern, but its culture as well. They will also understand how the volcano, Vesuvius, erupted, the type of eruption it was, and the aftermath. Students will understand the archaeology of Pompeii and Herculaneum and daily life in modern Naples.
Hello! I’m Sondra Rapoport, your friendly neighborhood Roman Historian. I live for 3 months of the year in Rome, it's my favorite city. I taught with Harvard University's Dept. of Classics for 6 years as a Head Teaching Fellow. I taught classes on The Rome of Augustus and Roman Games and won awards for distinction in teaching each semester I taught with Harvard. Now, I homeschool my son while we travel the world and I greatly enjoy adapting my knowledge and classes designed for university level to each of his grade levels. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
4 hours 35 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
