LET’S LEARN LATIN: A WORKSHOP FOR ES/MS TEACHERS!
the Latin language – Latin vocabulary – word roots – ancient Roman culture – Greek & Roman mythology – techniques for incorporating these topics into your classroom

July 30-31 / 9:00 am – 3:30 pm / Boston, MA
presented by: Ascanius: The Youth Classics Institute
hosted by: The Roxbury Latin School

Let’s Learn Latin will introduce elementary and middle school teachers to the world of Latin and the ancient Romans through a series of engaging, standards-connected lessons. Teachers get to play the role of students, learning the material through the same activities and lessons that they will be able to use in their own classrooms. Participants will enjoy learning the basics of Latin, by working through 80% or more of a colorful, interesting, kid-friendly text called Minimus, richly supplemented by effective and innovative activities to practice the material. Other topics include Latin vocabulary, word roots, and Roman culture and mythology – all of which integrate seamlessly with Minimus. No previous experience with Latin is needed!

Participants will receive myriad classroom-ready materials on all topics studied. All participants will receive documentation of their 12.0 contact hours. One (optional) graduate credit is available at additional cost.

Register: by mail or online. Deadline: 6/15/12. Limited to 15 participants. Cost: $75. Registration, all workshop materials and resources, and light breakfast with coffee are provided. Participants should bring their own lunch (there is not enough time to leave campus).
