Pre-conference workshop

for students

The Graduate Student Issues Committee (GSIC) is excited to be sponsoring a pre-conference workshop, “Disce ut Doceas: Preparing to be a TA in Latin,” in the Marriott on Wednesday, April 16, 3:30-7:30 p.m. (dinner break 5:30-6:00).  It is designed for graduate (or undergraduate) students who expect to be teaching assistants in college-level Latin courses; current TA's are also welcome. The workshop will cover topics such as lesson planning, classroom management, student learning styles, drilling grammar and vocabulary, writing quizzes, and using oral Latin.  Attendees will have the opportunity to do practice teaching with the rest of the “class.”  There is no charge for the workshop; those interested should simply sign up for it on the registration form. The workshop has been offered before at two ACL meetings, but this will be the first time it is offered at a CAMWS meeting.  GSIC urges all TA's, past, present, and future, to participate!
