Fall 2011 History Course: The Greeks
Grades 7-9. September 5-December 23, 2011. Live class meets Wednesdays at 12:30pm ET. Instructor: Kenneth Rolling The Greeks provide us with many of the known firsts or bests of Western Civilization: mathematicians, astronomers, poets, philosophers, statesmen, and historians. This course provides a combination of a narrative of Greek history from the earliest times up until the rise of Rome with a thematic focus on just such intellectual and artistic achievers. The idea of enquiry will be the backbone concept of the course: the Greeks provide examples about how to begin to ask questions about things we all see and do everyday that lead directly to many modern sciences and arts. A brief introduction to the Greek alphabet and language will also be included! For more information, visit The Rolling Acres School website.
