Class experience

US Grade 5 - 8
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. 
Homework Offered

In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
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.
