The recently published document, Standards for Latin Teacher Preparation, is a joint effort by SCS and the American Classical League to describe the skills and knowledge that beginning Latin teachers should have. The Standards are intended to inform colleges and universities, state accrediting agencies, and individuals who plan to teach or are currently teaching Latin. The Standards should be of interest to all those involved in teaching Latin since they incorporate valuable pedagogical aims and practices. In addition, knowing what is expected of a beginning Latin teacher can help us all to support the development of the next generation of Latin teachers.Ronnie Ancona
