The first half of this course will cover Aeneas’ journey to Italy after the Trojan War, Romulus and the succeeding kings, the establishment of the Roman Republic and its political institutions, and its heroes who served as examples of Romans mores. The second half will focus on the development of the Roman military and its expansion within Italy and the Mediterranean, including the Punic Wars. I will present brief lectures that include archaeological evidence, arguments of modern historians,...
Students will gain a general understanding of early Ancient Roman history--their mythological foundations, the individuals whose deeds and character shaped Roman cultural mores, and the development of an army who would eventually bring other civilizations to their knees. They will learn the differences between ancient and modern historical methodologies and how to separate the myths from facts surrounding Ancient Rome.
I have an MA in Classical Studies from Tufts University where I was a teaching assistant for a Roman history course. My undergraduate and graduate research focused heavily on the Romans (religion, history, and military) and Latin literature of the Golden and Silver Ages. I have spent two summers in Italy, one for independent, undergraduate research and the other for The Summer Classical School at The American Academy in Rome. I have taught Latin and Roman history, culture, and literature to middle to college level students and to my daughter who just turned eight.
There will be one reading or video/week that will focus on the week's topic designed to enhance student understanding and increase knowledge for the in-class discussions.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
There will one final, multiple choice assessment on the last day of class. Parent(s)/guardian(s) will receive a grade based on the final assessment and student participation.
2 hours per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Ancient Roman culture was violent by nature, thus this class does cover death, murder, and war; however, these topics are handled with utmost care, are age-appropriate, and not at all graphic in nature.
I will post links to the weekly articles/videos.
