Class experience

US Grade 2 - 5
This class has two specific goals.  One is to provide students with basic factual (although unusual) knowledge of the ancient and the medieval history of various countries/regions and their people. Second, Dr. Brezina hopes to make learning about the past fun through an engaging and interactive discussion-based format. 
Dr. Brezina taught ancient and medieval European/world history at various university prep schools in Europe and the United States and as well as at several American colleges and universities.
The study of the ancient and medieval history of various countries and regions deals generally with some sensitive topics in history such as war, civil war, and other conflicts. Dr. Brezina takes a great care to present the content in an age-appropriate manner.
There are many sources that are used for teaching the ancient and medieval history of countries/regions in this course. Dr. Brezina studied various primary and secondary sources (articles, books, dissertations, etc.) during his years as a teacher and professor of history that will allow him to interpret history objectively and address the full range of a variety of peoples' histories and historical perspectives. For example, he will draw from these books: Cookery and Dining in Imperial Rome by Apicius, Ancient Aztecs by Michal Burgan, A History of Europe by Norman Davies, The Oxford History of Medieval Europe by George Holmes,  and Medieval Europe by Chris Wickham (However, Dr. Brezina does not require students to purchase or use these books.)
