Class experience

US Grade 4 - 7
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 classes on The Rome of Augustus and Roman Games and won awards for distinction in teaching each semester I taught with Harvard. 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. 

 Additionally, I spend a great deal of time in the area of Rome in which some of these stories are told. I will be showing many of my own photographs and adding my own details to these stories.
This is a Halloween class. I will be telling spooky stories, but not too scary.
In addition to my own education and research, I have used the following sources for some of my research for this class:

The US Capitol Historical Society: https://uschs.org/capitol-history-blog/the-haunted-history-of-the-us-capitol/
Six Wives: The Queens of Henry VIII. (David Starkey)
Oxford Dictionary of the Renaissance
Street Life in Renaissance Rome: A Brief History with Documents. (Rudolph Bell)
The Cambridge History of The Middle Ages (Fossier)
