Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will gain an understanding of Middle Eastern, Egyptian, and Roman politics at the time of Cleopatra. They will also gain an understanding of the chief historical figure of that time and the significance of their interactions.
I taught with Harvard University's Dept. of Classics for 6 years as a Head Teaching Fellow. I was privileged to teach the popular and historic 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 with 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
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.
