5 Days in Venice With an Archaeologist. Canals, Bridges, Art, and Carnival!
In this Summer Camp, students will gain a working knowledge of modern day Venetian life and culture, its art and architecture, and how the city was constructed, maintained, and the issues it faces today. Finally, we will end with Carnivale.
1. Welcome to Venice. Let's learn about the fascinating history of this city of islands, bridges, and the most confusing street plan in Europe! Getting lost in Venice is part of the fun, but I know the way. We will visit St. Marks Basilica and its treasures. See the Bridge of Sighs and the famous Rialto Bridge. We will also learn about the 'aqua alta', the damaging high tides that flood Venice, the damage they cause, and the interesting ways that Venetians have adapted to still get around...
Students will gain an understanding of how Venice was constructed, its unique history and government, the impressive art and architecture, and get a feel for the native culture. Venice is a jewel of the world and the students will learn how it is being preserved as well.
Hello! I’m Sondra Rapoport, your friendly neighborhood Roman Historian. I live for 3 months of the year in Italy, and I love it. 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, Roman Games, and Medieval Culture and History and won awards for distinction in teaching each semester I taught with Harvard. Now, I homeschool my son 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.
I will be speaking live to the students as well as using a wide variety of slides from my travels around the world. I welcome questions before, during, and after the class. A class that interacts with the material learns it at a deeper level and I welcome questions at any time during the class. Each class will begin with a main question or idea for the students to keep in mind, as they will see the theme reappear. The class will all end with guided discussion based upon the main question and any interesting questions or comments. This will not be ‘dead air’ time, students will be encouraged to share their thoughts and questions. All photographs are my own.
