CAES Summer Get-Together at Skidmore

Sponte tua! CAES Summer Get-Together

Skidmore College, Saratoga
Noon, Monday June 25
through 5 p.m. June 27

CAES would like to invite all its members and friends to gather and grow in a relaxed atmosphere this summer. Our plan is to provide an opportunity for everyone to share their ideas and learn from each other informally and/or in some more organized fashion.  Think Latin summer camp where the participants set the agenda.

We do not have a list of speakers per se, but everyone is encouraged to come and bring best lessons, new ideas, concerns.  If someone has a presentation (5 min, 15 min, 30 min), bring it on!

So far, four areas of special concern have been raised:

  • the writing and sharing of Regents-type materials,
  • the new AP syllabus,
  • using Latin orally in the classroom, and, of course,
  • new state assessment guidelines
  • the ever developing world of technology and computer programs.

Housing and meals will be up to each person, but there will rooms available through Skidmore housing:

Registration is $20. We also need to know how if you will be attending for the entire time, or only a portion of the time. Please fill out the form below to register, and be sure to submit your payment via PayPal.
