The Latin Pedagogy You Didn’t Learn in Grad School

Thomas Hendrickson

Latin and English Instructor, Stanford Online High School

The COVID crisis pushed many educators from brick and mortar classrooms onto online platforms on short notice and without appropriate support: the difficulties in this transition were partly due to differences in effective pedagogy between the two teaching environments. Additionally, few PhD programs examine the trends and controversies of Latin pedagogy, although many grad students will ultimately teach in the world of secondary education where these practical considerations are particularly relevant. This joint presentation will feature concrete examples of teaching Classics in a shifting educational landscape: we will outline some strategic approaches to crafting an online Latin/Greek classroom and survey pedagogical tools that might be unfamiliar to Classics grad students (such as Comprehensible Input, spoken Latin, and Extensive Reading).
