3A2 Making the Leap: Developing Communicative and Cultural Activities for Petronius' Satyrica

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Making the transition from beginning to intermediate Latin need not be a leap, but can be a series of smaller steps designed to prepare students for reading authentic authors. This presentation will show the process how to design activities that integrate communication and culture, that simplify the text, and that also help prepare students to learn key vocabulary and cultural background so that they can read a Latin writer like Petronius. Topics include baths, housing, food, banquets, dinner conversation, games, funerals and commemoration, each illustrated by activities and projects tested in class by the presenter.
