Presenting an innovative workshop for teachers in and around the Boston area. The aim of the workshop is to explore fresh ideas in Latin teaching. 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.

The enthusiastic and fast-paced presentation, conducted by Matthew Webb, will include multimedia integration and hands-on interaction for participants, and provide opportunity for full-group discussion and analysis.
