11A Good Living: bringing ancient Roman philosophy to life in and out of the classroom

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

Have you ever wished that your Latin class could teach students not only to be great scholars but also to be amazing people? Two ancient authors, Lucretius and Marcus Aurelius, offer a transformational experience to readers and ought to be central to our outreach for the classics in the modern world. The De Rerum Natura and the Meditations communicate to students more clearly and immediately than any other works from classical antiquity, speaking to the human condition, unconstrained by time or culture. In this workshop, the presenter will relate his experiences teaching these authors and offer methods that use the literature to impact students in the living of their lives as powerful human beings. Participants will be empowered to design courses that create transformational opportunities for students through philosophy. All things must pass, but your Latin class will have a lasting effect on your students’ lives.
