I'm a certified social studies for grades 6-8. I'm fascinated by ancient history. I listen to lectures, podcasts, and audiobooks about history in my free time. I have 2 years of experience teaching social studies at the middle school level.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Violence, slavery, and war will be discussed in this class. Some students may find this disturbing. Graphic images and videos will not be shown. We will simply discuss what is needed to know to understand the lives of women in the Ancient World. This class uses Kahoot to check for understanding and to engage students, if time allows.
