Class Experience

Students will learn several important things in the pottery class.
1. The most important archaeological terms associated with ancient pottery, in general. 
2. How to appreciate pottery-making as a functional, decorative and ritual artform.
3. The basic steps in making pottery, especially in prehistoric times when pottery was one of the earliest inventions in the world.
4. Specific characteristics of ancient Egyptian pottery during specific historical periods.
I hold a Certificate of Museum Studies from Harvard University and, in June, I will receive my Diploma in Egyptology for a one-year program from Oxford College in England.  And I’ve been to Egypt three times on personalized, educational tours.

As a certified school substitute, I make the day more enjoyable - if it works out - by bringing an ancient Egyptian object into the classroom, whether I'm teaching language arts, social studies, science, consumer economics, art or even Native American studies.

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.
There will be no homework assigned, but I always encourage kids to do further research on their own.
Students will download a file upon enrolling. No other materials needed unless a student wants to take handwritten notes. I do encourage students to bring pottery or any images they would like to show the rest of the class.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Assessment will be informal.  Upon enrollment, kids will download a file with a short, fun pre-lesson quiz before the class.  Afterward, I will ask some questions from that quiz to see what students have learned or retained.
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
There is no guidance needed.
There are so many sites about ancient Egyptian pottery that I will refer to.

About Me

Welcome to "The Ancient Egyptian Room!" 

You never know what's going to happen in here.  One time during a class, I asked a question about Cleopatra, and a voice from somewhere - not from the students - answered it.  We were all shocked until I...Β
