CAM Spring Meeting


The Spring Meeting of CAM has been tentatively scheduled for Saturday, May 9, 2015.

 “Active Latin for All Levels”


Regardless of your experience at teaching Latin and the level at which you teach, experts and practitioners of active Latin methodology will guide you through activities that can be adapted for any level and any text.


We have an Exciting Fall Planned!

Visit the Met Museum, New York, Sat. Oct.3.

CAM cordially invites all Latin teachers from across MA to join CAM for
a one-day (all-day) trip to New York City to visit the collection of Greek & Roman Art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Saturday, October 3. All participants will have an opportunity, if they wish, to practice spoken Latin amidst one of the world’s greatest collections of art ancient and modern!

The bus ride to New York will include art history trivia, Latin games,
and an activity swap / teacher exchange. The museum visit will feature
an optional 2-hour spoken Latin tour of the collections hosted by our
active Latin expert and CAM Vice-President, Prof. James Dobreff of
UMass Boston. We will depart from the Riverside T station (exit #22
off of 95/128) at 6:00 a.m., making an additional stop in Western /
Central MA (TBD) at approximately 7 a.m. We will tour the museum from
11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. We will then visit Eataly downtown for an
optional Cena Latina and an opportunity to stock up for the ride home.
We should return to Western / Central MA at approximately 7 p.m. and
Riverside at about 8 p.m. All participants will be awarded 10 content

The CAM board has agreed to subsidize the visit in part. The cost of
the trip (which includes travel to and from NYC & admission to the
museum) is $90. The cost for current graduate students is $50.
