In particular, we will focus on engaging, standards-connected, and rigorous Latin language and Roman culture activities. Topics explored: grammar, vocabulary, reading comprehension, translation.
We will explore exciting methods of teaching, including learning games, kinesthetic activities, listening and speaking activities, multimedia and technology-based activities, and adaptations of modern language techniques.
