10E2 Formative Fun: Games in the Latin Classroom

It can be hard for us, especially when facing multiple preps or large class sizes, to find other ways to reinforce key fundamentals like grammar concepts and vocabulary.

Games include a reinterpretation of Battle Ship and Tic-Tac-Toe, as well as less familiar ones like Surrender on Six. This presentation is not reliant upon the use of any specific textbook or teaching method.
