Carmina Discipulosque Cano: Using Music to Enrich and Enliven the Latin Classroom
Friday, November 30, 2012 / 8:30 am - 3:30 pm
Glen Urquhart School
Beverly, MA (30 minutes north of Boston)

Music is an important aspect of our students' lives, so we can use music to involve our students more deeply in their study of the Latin language, or in Latin literature texts which may seem strange and distant to them. This workshop features two main components: 1) the multifaceted nature of music and its many applications for education in general and the Latin classroom specifically, and 2) weaving music into the study of Latin literature. More specifically, participants will learn about background music; focus music; music as a project; using music to stimulate discussion, develop critical thinking, and gauge student comprehension of a text; and activities for pre-reading, analysis, projects, and tests. Participants will be able to discuss and try out the activities presented, and will receive myriad materials that can be used immediately in the classroom.

Register: online. Deadline: 11/19/12. Cost: $59 (includes registration, all materials, coffee, lunch).
