Presented at:
SCL Summer Conference 2017

ABSTRACT:

The workshop will present specific strategies on integrating Latin into every core content area of a lower-school classical Christian curriculum. Demonstrating for students the relevance of Latin instruction on History, Science, Math, Literature, ELA, Bible, Art, Music, P.E., etc., will help strengthen not only students' mastery of Latin, but also their performance across the curricular spectrum. The workshop will address designing a cross-curricular Latin program, creating interdisciplinary unit plans, and collaborating with classroom teachers to maximize the impact on students' performance. The last part of the workshop will be an open discussion of attendees' ideas and concerns about how to create and implement such a program at their schools.
