Course Description

Using the Updated Standards for Classical Language Learning, participants will receive and create meaningful activities to apply when teaching Vergil’s Aeneid. The focus will be on methods to help students understand the Aeneid’s role as the epic about the founding of Rome during the beginning of the Roman empire, Vergil’s choice as an author during this turbulent time, and what the text shares about Roman identity.  This course will be especially useful to teachers who are currently teaching Vergil, teaching the AP Latin syllabus, or just interested in learning more about teaching Vergil. (Open to Latin teachers or anyone proficient in Latin. Conducted in English) 

What participants are saying about this course

"Very good choices of interesting articles that made me look at the text in new ways. There was also a lot to learn from colleagues--I wish we had had more in the class for a longer period of time!"

"Maureen gave good feedback and was very encouraging. She was also very flexible with the class and realized that things come up in our lives. Maureen is very caring and thoughtful! She has a lot of great ideas and is always willing to share them. Maureen is also passionate about the Vergil text and teaching. She must be great with her kids in the classroom!"
