Class Experience

We will look at the great Roman leaders, thinkers, and heroes of this fascinating culture and get to know their gods and their mythology. Students will learn how to read and discuss historic texts and documents and how to analytically look at history. History repeats itself, so let's learn the lessons of the past and apply them to the future. World History is fun!
Hello! I’m Sondra Rapoport, your friendly neighborhood Roman Historian. I taught with Harvard University's Dept of Classics for 6 years as a Head Teaching Fellow. I taught classes on The Rome of Augustus and Roman Games and won awards for distinction in teaching each semester I taught with Harvard. I also taught History of Ancient Egypt at Tufts University and worked for years on the Giza Project. This project catalogues, translates, and researches the 150 years of archaeological discovery around the Great Pyramids.  Now, I homeschool my son and I greatly enjoy adapting my knowledge and classes designed for university level to each of his grade levels. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
