Martin E. Robertson

To give students a deeper appreciation and understanding of the ancient world and how it was shaped by geology, Mr. Robertson travels to Egypt, Greece, and Rome to collect materials to enhance the social studies curriculum. Among other regional subjects, Mr. Robertson studies ancient Egyptian culture concerning an early Exodus theory that weaves the geology of Mount Thera with the histories of the Egyptians, Hebrew, Minoans, and Mycenaeans and he documents artifacts and geological evidence to compile a new curriculum. Expanding the influence of his research, Mr. Robertson distributes these new curriculum materials and provides in-service training on their use for teachers across the district.
