The New Standards for Learning Classical Languages

Organized by the Committee on Education

Mary English, Montclair State University, Organizer

The Standards for Learning Classical Languages provide a framework for assessing student proficiency in Latin and Greek. Although the Standards are used primarily by K-12 public school teachers as a guide for creating lesson plans that conform to national expectations for Latin and Greek curricula, they will become increasingly important for college and university faculty. This panel looks at how the newly-revised Standards affect college and university faculty and how instructors can embrace them to revitalize their Latin and Greek programs.
