7D Digital Bridge to Authentic Latin: Eutropius for a New Generation

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

This talk looks at the process of creating a digital commentary on selections from Eutropius’ Breviarum Historiae Romanae. This work serves as an excellent text for students transitioning from textbook Latin to authentic Latin and helps to provide historical background for students preparing for the AP exam. We compare current digital commentaries and discuss how technology can help make the reading of texts more exciting, more meaningful, and more significant. We delve extensively into the different elements of our commentary on Eutropius, including its cross-platform functionality, and its conformity to Classical Language and Common Core Standards. Bring your own personal electronic device as we give a hands-on demonstration of how it can be used in a one-to-one technology classroom. We’ll show you how we used it in our classroom, and how you can use it in yours.
