The College Board and ETS are currently recruiting college and university faculty interested in scoring Advanced Placement Latin Exams. Applicants must have taught Vergil and/or Caesar at the college level (in intermediate or advanced Latin classes) at some point in the past three years. For more information, see the following link: http://apcentral.collegeboard.com/apc/public/homepage/4137.html.
"Latin is a bit like a zombie: dead but still clamoring to get into our brains. In one discipline, however, Latin just got a bit deader.
