Hello homeschoolers! I am working on the content for the fall classes, and homeschool class spaces are going very fast! If you’re interested in anything being offered, please reach out. I can provide you with more details and a preliminary syllabus. As always, more information may be found on Homeschoolny and NYCHEA email lists. Be sure to join them to keep up to date on homeschool happenings!
Medieval History! – using the Met and written primary sources as our guides
Medieval Literature! – starring Boethius, Augustine, Chaucer, Boccaccio, and the lost writers of the Tain, Mabinogion, Icelandic Sagas, Song of Roland and more!
The Universe! – Cosmology, Astronomy, Astrophysics, and the crossroads of science and culture!
Issues in the Ancient World! – Colonialism, Racism, Orientalism, Religion and all of the other ways in which we make assumptions about Egyptians, Mesopotamians, Andean peoples, Mesoamericans, and more!
Paranormal and History! – Studying world and US history through the lens of the “unexplained” – haunted castles, alien assumptions, vampires, ghosts and other examples of the otherworldly as our lens!
Governments! – using the AP Comparative Government exam as our guide to comparing the governments of China, Iran, Great Britain, Nigeria, and Mexico…as well as others, based on student interest! More US focus available, too!
AP styled courses in US History and Europe!, but with many additional twists and museum explorations!
I am also delighted to finish the fine-tuning on my Hunter College syllabi. Religious Experience, Ancient Near Eastern Religions, Religions of Mexico, Central and South America, and Astrology and World Religions are offered.
I’m looking forward to a great 2019-2020 year!
