Course overview and purpose:
The basic idea of this course is to investigate History (and in particular the Ancient Roman one) from a less frequently used point of view: ancient everyday life.
The choice of the topics – which are going to be discussed in class with the participants – aims at helping them to later present to their students Roman ancient history by drawing parallels to what students themselves can, in some respect, experience in their own life.
By tracing differences and similarities between ancient reality and modern one, the students will feel history closer, less abstract in terms of objects and events.
Each one of the topics discussed in classroom (see the detailed list below) is chosen in order to be the starting point for the creation of an ancient Rome historical frame (i.e.: its political life, economy, art production, sociology) as well as, on the other side, to draw parallel to facts/events that students can experience in their own everyday life.
Teachers (primary, secondary, vocational, adult, special needs), teacher trainers, careers officers, educational counsellors, headteachers, principals, managers of schools
No specific requirements
Sessions will be confirmed only when the minimum number of participants is reached.
In case your school wishes to send more than 6 participants together to the same course, we may evaluate the possibility to offer an extra session only for you (and in this case, we would be pleased to evaluate your proposal for fixed dates).
