Most history classes look at what life was like for adults, but in this class we will explore what it was like to grow up and be a child at different points in history. Every week will feature an interactive NearPod class where we will explore the houses, foods and clothing of different time periods, before looking at childhood. We'll learn about different toys, what children did all day and what they wore. We'll talk about what school was like in the past (and who went to school) and think...
Students will: Explore different time periods and geographical locations from the ancient world Discover toys from different time periods Discover how children learnt and what school would have been like. Develop their prediction skills by engaging with primary sources.
I have a PhD in history and a Primary School Teaching Degree. I have taught history to all ages, from 3 years old up to the University level. My PhD focuses on the history of childhood and I have attended (and presented at) a number of conferences and events focusing on the international history of children, as well as been a member of the Children's History Society.
These classes are asynchronous so learners will need to find time each week to complete the sessions. Each week there are 2 activities that can be completed outside of class time.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
As we are discussing the ancient world, some level of inequality will be discussed, particularly in regards to education (typically only rich boys attended school). We will also be looking at different foods that were eaten in these time periods, which does include mention of eating meat. In addition, there will be mention of slavery (although this is not a main focus) within the week on Ancient Rome. Please ensure that you and your learner are comfortable with these discussions.
