2018 Education Committee Panel and Abstracts

Teaching, Living, and Learning: Classical Studies in Secondary Schools

Mary English, Montclair State University, and Philip Walsh, St. Andrew's School, Organizers


Given the bleak job market in higher education for classicists, the Committee on K-12 Education wishes to urge recent PhDs to consider teaching and learning at the high school level. Seasoned teacher-scholars will reflect on their professional experiences in secondary school education and discuss pedagogical trends and innovations possible at the pre-collegiate level. The session will open with an introduction from the Placement Director of the American Classical League, who will give an overview of the K-12 job market and discuss resources - job postings, resume services, and state certification and licensure options - available to candidates seeking positions at this level.
