Class Experience

Students will leave this class with a better understanding of how ancient Romans lived their daily lives. More so, they will see the archaeological process and learn the ethical conundrum preservationists face when trying to maintain and preserve heritage sites. 
I am a historian (BA and MA). I have traveled and researched in Pompeii. I have taught and tutored in Latin and ancient history, including classes on Roman culture and history. 
No homework or supplies are needed.
No supplies are needed.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Informal assessment. I will send a note to the family of the students after class. 
1 hour 20 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Any religion (polytheistic in nature) is presented in an unbiased and historical lens. There is a brief mention of the slaves required to maintain the households, baths, and public works. There is a discussion of gladiators and some violence is mentioned regarding the public spectacles of the games. I do not, however, venture into the subject of brothels, for which Pompeii had quite the reputation.
