Summer AP Latin
The Classics Program of the Department of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures at the University of South Carolina plans to conduct an AP Summer Institute in June of 2012 to prepare teachers to instruct the newly revised AP Latin curriculum. The AP course now includes readings from Caesar (as well as Vergil) with a corresponding expansion of the historical emphasis, and thus demands new skills and strategies useful for both first-time and veteran AP Latin teachers. For the first week (June 11-15), the Institute will be held on the USC campus; subsequent weeks (June 18-22; June 25-June 29) will be conducted as independent work submitted through Blackboard 9.1, as well as virtual class meetings, using Skype or Elluminate. The course will be taught as LATN 580 (=EDSE 580), Teaching AP Latin in Secondary Schools, by Hunter Gardner (Assistant Professor, Classics) as the instructor of record and by Michael Myer of Heathwood Hall (Columbia, SC) as the AP Master Teacher.
Partipants are required to submit an application for acceptance as a non-degree student through the USC Graduate School.
