Description

Class Experience

I have a B.A. and M.A. in ancient Greek history and archaeology, as well as an M.A. in history and phiosophy of religions. I have excavated in ancient Greek sites, I speak ancient and modern Greek and I am currently finishing my PhD. 
Homework, designed to take no more than 30 minutes per day, will be assigned in the form of handouts distributed before each of the five meetings and students will be asked to study it as part of their preparation (each hand out will be uploaded 24 hours in advance).

Optionally, at the end of the camp  the students may be assigned an (optional) multiple-choice quiz, in order to test their memory, attention and observation. This test may also include a couple of questions requiring a very short answer, in order to assess the learners' comprehension. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
I do not believe that a letter grade is meaningful for a camp on Alexander III. However, as I often do with my one-time classes, which are always small classes (up to 7 students), I communicate with the parents and the children directly, providing my personal comments, private feedback and an informal assessment, especially in case students choose to complete the (optional) quiz.
5 hours per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
