Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will gain an understanding of this popular holiday. We will get to know its origins, traditions, stories, and the modern day celebration of Christmas. It is a fascinating history. Please join me as we explore it.
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. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
In addition to my own education and research, I have used the following books for some of my research for this class:
Egypt: The World of the Pharaohs (Schulz and Seidel)
Oxford Classical Dictionary and Oxford Companion to Classical Civilizations
A Treasury of Irish Myth, Legend, and Folklore (Yeats)
The Cambridge History of The Middle Ages (Fossier)

I have an extensive personal library and all of these books are in my collection. It is not necessary for the students to have read any of these books. Although they are interesting!
