Course Description

This course will look at ways that participants can create more opportunities to engage in social justice in the Latin curriculum. This course will look at three prongs engaging with social justice: intercultural competency, culturally responsive teaching, and creating an inclusive classroom climate. Through exploring these three different ways of looking at opportunities to increase awareness of social justice, participants will come away with strategies, activities, and assessments to create a more equitable and inclusive classroom and curriculum. 

Course Rationale 

This course would be a great way for both novice and experienced Latin teachers to connect with other Latin teachers, collaborate on activities, and reflect deeply on how they can implement intercultural competency, culturally responsive teaching, and an inclusive climate in their classes. There will be many opportunities for creating lessons and brainstorming activities. The lessons, assignments, discussion topics, and writing prompts of this course can easily be modified to fit any Latin class at the middle, secondary, or university level.  The course will rely heavily on the performance descriptors, sample performance indicators and sample progress indicators included in the revised Standards for Classical Language Learning, the ACTFL Standards for Intercultural Competence, and the Learning for Justice Frameworks.
