SP20- From Epigram to Epic: Teaching Poetry in the Latin Classroom

REGISTRATION CLOSED

March 23 - May 1 (with an optional 1 week Spring Vacation to May 8)

Latin poetry frequently constitutes a student's first experience with authentic Latin literature. Moving beyond mere translation to the interpretation and analysis of lines of verse can be challenging for students and instructors alike. Participants in this course will read and analyze multiple genres of Latin poetry across several historical periods and through the lens of the Updated Standards for Classical Language Learning. While considering each poem within its historical and cultural context, participants will explore stylistic nuance and contemplate varied interpretations of the text. At the same time, they will develop strategies and techniques for teaching poetry to students. (Open to Latin teachers or anyone proficient in Latin. Conducted in English by Kelli Braley)

 

Students who matriculate into an Instructor-Facilitated course should adhere to the dates listed on the website. Final coursework should be submitted within one week after the course end date. Course extensions beyond one week are subject to a $50 fee.
