3D2 Leveraging Your Learning Management System in the 1:1 Latin Classroom

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

This workshop provides an understanding of how to maximize the benefits of the LMS in their 1:1 classrooms. Participants will leave this session with tips and strategies that can immediately be incorporated into their teaching practice.

The first half of the session will address the LMS in the Latin 1 classroom. Main topics:

  1. Best practices for organizing and distributing assignments.

  2. Strategies to design assignments that provide timely, meaningful feedback to students while simultaneously reducing your grading load.

The second half of the session will deal with the Latin Reading Project, a modular approach used for intermediate to advanced classes that are mainly focused on reading, understanding, and analyzing  literature. The Latin Reading Project is designed to achieve these ends:

  1. Differentiation

  2. Student-led learning

  3. Increased one-on-one time with students

While the presenter uses the Canvas LMS, the tips and strategies presented in this session should work for any robust LMS.

I am particularly interested in curriculum design, assessment, and differentiation through the use of technology. I am also working on an iBook called The Digital Latin Classroom. If you're in my session, feel free to contact me with any questions: kwebster@marymountnyc.org.
