Latin and Teaching Latin

This website has mostly been dedicated to my work with Latin rhythms.  Although I consider using them to be the most underrated practice to engage students, things-metrical take up a small portion of my classes.

For the past year, I’ve increasingly devoted my time to researching the TEACHING of Latin.  When I’ve compiled enough info, and am confident in my practices, I will alter the course of this site more towards pedagogy and less towards theory.  Topics will likely include:

– Standards-Based Grading
– Proficiency Scales (the END of the zero, and 100-point grading scale)
– Comprehensible Input (CI)
– Teaching Proficiency through Reading and Storytelling (TPRS)
– Practical uses of meter in the classroom (ie. “lesson plans” for the rhythmically-challenged)
