How Outschool Works

It's a slim chance that you might have lived the life of royalty in ancient Egypt, such as a pharaoh, queen or heir to the throne. It's much more likely that you would have been a kid from a wealthy family (if you were lucky), a son or daughter of a poor family (very common), or most unfortunate, but possible - the child of slaves. These are the topics that will be covered: ∆ Week 1. How the Rich and Noble Lived in Ancient Egypt There were only one or two levels higher in status than...
Students will learn about: 1. Class mobility or the lack of it in ancient Egypt. 2. How individuals in each status level managed to survive despite specific challenges, including those encountered by the wealthy. 2. How the different classes in Egypt viewed themselves as opposed to the way other classes viewed them. 3. If slaves taken in captivity from foreign countries were allowed to follow their own religious and cultural beliefs.
I hold a Certificate of Museum Studies from Harvard University and a Diploma in Egyptology from Oxford College in England. And I’ve been to Egypt three times on personalized, educational tours. 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.
Students will not be given formal homework, but I will strongly encourage students to bring in questions and comments on the following week's topic that they will know in advance. I would be thrilled if some students ask to do something for the next class.
Students do not need any extra materials. I will send files before and after the class that will be used during the class and afterward for the student's own research, if desired.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Each week, there will be an informal and fun quiz to download and take together at the beginning of class. At the end of each weekly class, we will review the questions and see what students have retained.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
The only sensitive information is that most ancient Egyptian art shows some nudity.
I will be referring to many different websites that feature information on class status in ancient Egypt. And I welcome hearing suggestions from students regarding various resources that I may not know about.
