Class Experience

This class is taught in English.

Hello! I’m Sondra Rapoport, your friendly neighborhood Roman Historian and a New Yorker for 12 years. I taught with Harvard University's Dept. of Classics for 6 years as a Head Teaching Fellow. I taught Medieval Culture, Roman Games (gladiators), and The Rome of Augustus, for which I was nominated for the Levenson Teaching Award and won awards for distinction in teaching each semester I taught with Harvard. Now, I homeschool my son and I greatly enjoy adapting my knowledge and classes designed for university level to each of his grade levels. I love Christmas and am in the process of writing a book on the history of the holiday.
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.
No discussion of Santa Claus
