We'll explore fresh ideas in Latin teaching through engaging,

include grammar, vocabulary, reading comprehension, and translation.
Methods to be explored include learning games, kinesthetic activities,
listening and speaking activities, multimedia and technology-based
activities, and adaptations of modern language techniques. The
presentation style is fast-paced, with plenty of multimedia
integration, hands-on interaction for participants, and opportunity
for group discussion and analysis. Participants will receive myriad
materials that can be used immediately in the classroom.

Register: by mail or online. Deadline: 10/24/11. Cost: $55 (includes
registration, all materials, coffee, lunch).
