Group Description

The Latin—Best Practices Group is for all Latin teachers and students who are interested in applying best practices in language acquisition to their work in Latin. Best practices comprises a general set of effective and differentiated pedagogical methodologies which can be applied to all subjects. Best practices in Latin also includes those language learning practices that 1) include the latest and best research in language acquisition; 2) those practices that help learners acquire various language abilities in Latin; and 3) practices and practitioners that are constantly evolving in order to serve learners’ needs.

Those who join this group will be open to the idea that Latin is best learned through all forms of communication (i.e. speaking, listening, reading, writing), which is central to the work and practices that are current in language acquisition research. The purpose of this forum is to create a place where teachers and students of Latin can: 1) discuss these approaches; 2) test out ideas; 3) share experiences (both what works and what does not); 4) ask questions; 5) creatively explore ways to use best practices in the teaching and learning of Latin as both a living and ancient language; 6) encourage members to share their classroom materials, lesson plans, and 7) provide an online filing system for these materials, as well as 8) information about workshops and other useful resources.
