Class experience

US Grade 5 - 8
This class is taught in English.
We will look at the great Greek leaders, thinkers, and heroes of this early democracy and get to know their gods and their mythology. Students will learn how to read and discuss historic texts and documents and how to analytically look at history. History repeats itself, so let's learn the lessons of the past and apply them to the future. World History is fun!
I taught with Harvard University's Dept. of Classics for 6 years as a Head Teaching Fellow and hold degrees in Classical Civilizations, Classical Archaeology, and German Language and Literature. I  taught the popular and historic class, The Rome of Augustus, for which I  won awards for distinction in teaching each semester I taught with Harvard. I also have experience teaching Middle Ages Literature, Art, and History, Ancient Egyptian History, World History: Neolithic to 1500s, and Roman Games (Gladiators).  In addition to working on the Giza Project with Boston's Museum of Fine Arts and Harvard for 3 years- a 150 year old joint archaeological project focused on the Giza Pyramids and the surrounding necropolis. Now, I homeschool my son and I greatly enjoy adapting my knowledge and classes designed for university level to each of his grade levels
