Carmina et sacra quibus melius Latinam docere possis

Because songs and rituals enter the brain differently from what is read or spoken, using them in the Latin classroom enables better teaching of Latin. The presenter will share songs she has written, based on Broadway and old standards, to make Latin more accessible through a different, amusing, and engaging pathway. In addition, she will also share how she celebrates a calendar of events from the equinox in September to honoring seniors in June to make a coherent group of each class.

Latin teacher, Newton South High School
Come sing some songs only a Latin teacher would love. | Here are the first words of one: | (to the tune of "Guys and Dolls") | When you see a verb and it's more than one verb | you can bet . . . . Come learn the rest and 20 other songs that make Latin accessible. Terrible voices welcome.
