Ascanius: The Youth Classics Institute presents: LATINSUMMER ROME
An unforgettable summer program for middle schoolers and their parents! On-site in Rome!
Join us this summer for an enrichment program that brings the ancient Roman world to life. Explore the arena where gladiators and beasts fought long ago, race along the tracks of ancient chariots, perform a play on the same stage as ancient actors, approach Rome along the queen of roads, and much more! At each site, creative and hands-on activities will get you working with the culture. And as you journey through the eternal city, you’ll learn Latin through modern, engaging techniques – in the very same places where Latin was born and that echoed with the sounds of Latin for millennia.
As CAES is in its 50th year, it seems fitting that our members take some time to reflect on the organization, as well as our profession. I'd like to share a bit about my Latin "heritage," the path I took in becoming a Latin teacher.
