Latin Teachers Sought for The Brooklyn Latin School

The Brooklyn Latin School (TBLS) is one of New York City’s eight specialized (i.e. exam) high schools, offering a classical, liberal arts education. A replication of the prestigious Boston Latin School, TBLS was founded in 2006, and all of its upper class students are enrolled in the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program, a challenging two-year course of study widely recognized by the world’s leading universities. We are presently seeking results-oriented teachers who exhibit effective leadership, thorough content knowledge, a reflective nature, a strong work ethic, and an appreciation for the discipline of teaching.

Summer Course: 21st Century Technology in the Latin Classroom

Dates: July 2—July 6, 2012

Integrating technology in the Latin classroom is a powerful way to increase student achievement and augment engagement.  This weeklong workshop will address the many ways that current technology can enhance and enliven the Latin classroom.  Participants will have the opportunity to explore a variety of technologies that are valuable additions to both the elementary and advanced Latin curriculum. The workshop will address methods and tools for building vocabulary, teaching language skills, and integrating history and culture.  The focus will be on using free or inexpensive web-based tools (Prezi, the Google suite, Popplet, social networks, animoto etc.) that work on various computing platforms to create media-rich lessons.
