General Catalog:

Instructional approaches and issues in teaching ancient language and civilization at secondary and college levels.

Description:

This course will explore the unique challenges of teaching ancient languages and culture in high schools and colleges today.  Topics include:  defining the field of classics, influence and teaching of Latin (and Greek) over time and space, national standards for teaching and learning, primary approaches to teaching Latin and Greek, review of commonly-used textbooks, pedagogical controversies, cognitive styles and individual differences (including learning disabilities), peer teaching and collaborative learning, younger learners (elementary and middle school), resources for teachers, and advocacy and outreach.  Depending on the background and interests of the class, topics may be added or subtracted.  Requirements include daily reading assignments, two projects, and two exams.  This course is for students who think they may be interested in graduate school in classics or associated fields.  It also is intended to supplement the teacher preparation programs in the College of Education that focus on modern foreign language instruction.  In addition, it will be of general interest to students majoring in Classical Languages or Ancient Civilization.
