Let Your Students Sell Your Program: Latin Projects Beyond the Classroom
As Latin teachers, we can often face questions about the usefulness of what we do or how the knowledge of Latin can be a job advantage in a multi-lingual, global economy. In our individual districts, our programs are only as strong as our ability to forge meaningful connections with the community at large. We cannot do this alone. Our students themselves are the best advertisement for our programs, and in this workshop, the presenter hopes to share some of the ways that he tries to harness his students’ humor and channel their Latin exhibitionism in constructive ways. Participants will leave this workshop having explored a series of projects which they can adapt for their own programs - projects in which students can take their knowledge of Latin to the people, so to speak, and perform for a wider audience beyond the traditional classroom setting.
