When presented with a new interpretive reading task, language learners often stress over vocabulary and forget to consider context. But the original location of every reading or artifact carries with it a wealth of information necessary for genuine comprehension. This session examines the importance of identifying and responding to extra-textual clues - such as literary genre, history, and culture - and provides strategies to support and increase understanding.

My primary goal is to enable my students to read fluently. I am always looking for way to to help them to manage Latin sentences with confidence so that they can comprehend a passage, reading left to right without translating.
