This paper will present a modern spin on the “student becomes an expert on a Latin text” project. Upper level high school students complete an assignment where they master a passage of Latin, including translation (first literal, then literary), the author’s background, historical context, and literary devices. They then produce a podcast intended for a general audience to exhibit their expertise. This project is inspired by Christopher Francese’s A Podcasting Approach to Greek and Latin Orality in the Spring 2015 Teaching Classical Languages, but is intended to focus more on the high school goals of translation and background research (e.g. information on the author and broader history) as opposed to Latin performance.
