Hello! I’m Sondra Rapoport, your friendly neighborhood Roman Historian. I taught with Harvard University's Dept. of Classics for 6 years as a Head Teaching Fellow. I taught The Rome of Augustus and Roman Games and won awards and distinctions in teaching each semester. I also taught History of Ancient Egypt at Tufts University and worked for years on the Giza Project. (This project catalogues, translates, and researches the 150 years of archaeological discovery around the Great Pyramids).  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 speak live to the students using a wide variety of slides from my travels around the world. I welcome questions before, during, and after class. A group of students that interacts with the material learns it at a deeper level and I welcome questions throughout. Each class begins with a main question or idea for the students to keep in mind, as they will see the theme reappear. Class ends with guided discussion based upon the main question and any interesting questions or comments. There is no ‘dead air’ time; students are encouraged to share their thoughts and questions. All photographs are my own.
We use my vast catalogue of photographs from my travels and research in Italy and Egypt, as well as occasional passages from Virgil, Ovid, Catullus, etc. (which I will provide).
