I hold a Diploma in Egyptology from Oxford College in England and a Certificate of Museum Studies from Harvard University. And I’ve been to Egypt three times on personalized, educational tours. I've been captivated by ancient Egypt since I was 10 years old. And I feel it's my destiny to share my enthusiasm for and expertise on this beautiful and brilliant 5000-year-old civilization with all of you. I hope to see you soon for a class. I think you'll agree that The Egyptian Room is an attractive, fun and inspiring place to learn.
Students will not be given formal homework, but I will strongly encourage students to bring in questions and comments on the following week's topic. I would be thrilled if some students ask to contribute something for the next class.
1 file available upon enrollmentStudents do not need any extra materials. I will send files before and after the class that will be used during the class and afterward for the student's own research, if desired.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Each week, there will be an informal and fun quiz to download and take together at the beginning of class. At the end of each weekly class, we will review the questions and see what students have retained.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
The only sensitive information is that most ancient Egyptian art shows some nudity. Some students may be uncomfortable talking about frightening animals, such as crocodiles and snakes that live in the Nile.
I will be referring to many different websites that feature information on the Nile in ancient Egypt. And I welcome hearing suggestions from students regarding various resources that I may not know about.
