This 4-week Diamond Club Learning Pod class is an in-depth introduction to the Roman Empire. Students will learn about the cultural, political, geographical, and economic history of Rome, from its founding, through its rise, and to its downfall. We'll meet once a week for a fun and interactive lesson with images, videos, and lectures. We'll find answers to questions: What enabled Rome to become an empire? What impact did Julius Caesar and Augustus have on the creation of the empire? What...
By the end of this course students will be able to: -Explain how geographic features contributed to the settlement and growth of Rome. -Describe the events of the Punic Wars. -Determine the impact of Julius Caesar and Octavian Agustus. -Describe the empire's history and legacy. -Identify inventions and achievements of the Roman Empire. -Analyze gender roles and social structures in the Roman Empire.
I have a master's degree in Political Science, and postgraduate studies in economics, Human Development, and Gender, as well as a B.A. in Legal Studies. I was an elementary school teacher for five years, teaching world history and literature as my main subjects. I fell in love with Roman history while living and working in Rome -for over a decade, I was a consultant and researcher for various feminist NGOs, the United Nations, and the World Bank.
Students might be asked to watch a short video, read an article, or finish classwork for homework.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
There will be no quizzes or tests. Students will be assessed on their classroom discussion participation.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
I encourage students to ask questions and to have open-minded, and kind discussions during class. If any sensitive questions come up, regarding topics such as warfare, intentionally cruel acts, gender roles in history, etc. my responses will always be evidence-based, age-appropriate, and relevant to the class topic. If I need time to get more information, I will defer the answer to the next class.
