Class Experience

Students will learn about:
1. What kind of societies approve of love as a reason for marriage.
2. How to find/view archaeological evidence for love in ancient societies.
3. How being an archaeologist in modern times influences the interpretation of the evidence you find in ancient cultures.
I hold a Certificate of Museum Studies from Harvard University and a Diploma in Egyptology from Oxford College in England.  And Iโ€™ve been to Egypt three times on personalized, educational tours.

As a certified school substitute, I make the day more enjoyable - if it works out - by bringing an ancient Egyptian object into the classroom, whether I'm teaching language arts, social studies, science, consumer economics, art or even Native American studies.

I've been captivated by ancient Egypt since I was 10 years old.  And I feel it's my destiny to share my enthusiasm for and expertise on this beautiful and brilliant 5000-year-old civilization with all of you.  I hope to see you soon for a class.  I think you'll agree that The Egyptian Room is an attractive, fun and inspiring place to learn.  And, please, if you like, call me Ms. Sennuwy - my chosen ancient Egyptian name.
There will be no homework. As usual, I will send students additional resources at the end of the lesson so they can research marriage and family life in ancient Egypt on their own.
ย 2ย files available upon enrollment
Students do not have to appear on video if they don't want to. No supplies are needed unless students want to take their own notes.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
There will be a short, fun-type quiz to download before the class to see how much students know before the class.  At the end of the class, I will ask students the quiz questions again to see what they've learned.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Sensitive material includes the word "lovers," the tolerance for sex before marriage in ancient Egypt, the idea of infidelity that was not tolerated and that it was OK for children to be born out of marriage.
A lot of information will be included from numerous websites on ancient Egypt.

About Me


Welcome to "The Ancient Egyptian Room!" 

You never know what's going to happen in here.  One time during a class, I asked a question about Cleopatra, and a voice from somewhere - not from the students - answered it.  We...ย
