Programs for Teachers

Workshops and presentations by Ascanius may be offered in various regions of the country and include exciting hands-on ways to teach Latin and the classics. Of particular interest to non-Latin teachers is our popular Let's Learn Latin workshop, in which teachers learn the basics of Latin through activities and lessons that they will be able to use in their own classrooms.

Upcoming Events for Teachers

UPDATE 3/11/2020: COVID-19 UPDATE: The Let's Learn Latin workshop will not take place as planned on March 27. Our workshop's host organization, the Classical Association of the Middle West and South (CAMWS) will no longer hold its conference as planned for March 25-28; this change impacts our workshop as well. If you are interested in receiving updates about a possible date for rescheduling, please register (from this page) and we will keep you informed.
