From John Gruber-Miller:
I am pleased to announce that the latest issue of Teaching Classical Languages, the online journal sponsored by CAMWS, is now available at http://www.tcl.camws.org. This issue features two articles and a review article. The first article asks us to consider the broader question of how do we teach, using the metaphor of genre to frame our reflections. And the second article explores how we teach Latin to students whose first language is Spanish and second language is English. Finally, the third article reviews eight new Latin readers published as part of the Bolchazy-Carducci new Latin Readers series.
This issue lets readers take advantage of TCL's electronic publication. Readers now have the opportunity to download each article to an e-reader so that they can read TCL in the comfort of their home or favorite coffee shop. And through the advice and hard work of CAMWS webmaster Alex Ward, readers can make comments on the articles and join in a conversation with other readers (and the author) about ideas raised in each article.
In this issue:
- Yasuko Taoka, "Classroom as Text: What Genres Do We Teach In?"
- Tracy Jamison Wood, "Third Language Acquisition: Spanish-Speaking Students in the Latin Classroom"
- Judith Lynn Sebesta, "Aliquid Novi: The New Series of Bolchazy-Carducci Latin Readers"
To read the articles in this issue, download them to your e-reader, or to comment on an article, click on http://www.tcl.camws.org and then go to Current Issue.
Teaching Classical Languages welcomes articles offering innovative practice and methods, advocating new theoretical approaches, or reporting on empirical research in teaching and learning Latin and Greek.
