2020 Ladislaus J. Bolchazy Pedagogy Book Award:
Christine Loren Albright (University of Georgia)
The 2020 Ladislaus J. Bolchazy Pedagogy Book Award goes to Christine Loren Albright (University of Georgia) for her textbook, Ovid’s Metamorphoses: A Reader for Students in Elementary College Latin (London and New York: Routledge, 2018).
This year’s winning textbook fits all the criteria for the award: it is appropriate for the target audience; material is presented clearly; the quality of both the selections and the commentary is strong; the pedagogical aims are clear, and clearly met; and the potential for broad impact is evident. Highlights of the praise offered by subcommittee members include the following: “Albright has provided a much-needed resource—Ovid simplified and adapted in prose form.” “The most attractive feature of this volume is its rendering Ovid accessible to the elementary-level college student.” “Because it is committed to no specific method and to no specific textbook series, it is quite adaptable to any instructor’s preferred pedagogy.” Congratulations!
