Class Experience

Students will learn about the events that led to the collapse of the Roman Republic, and the social dynamics that made it inevitable. We’ll start by dissecting the state of Rome as its success on the global stage altered the domestic landscape, allowing for the rise of a few powerful leaders. The middle of the class will trace the concatenation of conflicts that culminated in civl war: Caesar and the people vs Pompey and the senate. Finally, we’ll look at the senate’s response to Caesar’s new order.
There is no official homework, but optional readings may be recommended depending on in-class discussion.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
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.
