Class experience

US Grade 8 - 11
Students will begin by learning about the various kingdoms of the 7th century BCE in the Fertile Crescent, and how their struggles gave rise to the Persian empire and Cyrus the Great. The middle part of the curriculum follows the line of kings that Cyrus founded — the Achaemenid dynasty — and their military engagements with surrounding cultures. Finally, we’ll look at the factors that lead to a weakening of the the empire’s structure, allowing Alexander the Great to claim it by conquest.
Homework Offered
There is no official homework, but optional readings may be recommended depending on in-class discussion.
Assessments Offered
While this is a history class, it is a history of warfare -- and a primitive kind at that. We will maintain an academic perspective, but we will discuss how and why people kill one another. We'll keep it PG.
Grades Offered
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
