11C Small Changes, Big Results: Making Your Textbook Work for You and Your Students

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

Good Latin teachers aim to make the language accessible to varied learning styles and ability levels, engage students in learning, and bring enough creativity to the table to keep our students excited to come to class. Most of us have a single textbook as a resource, which we may or may not have chosen ourselves. In this practical, hands-on workshop, we will explore how to adapt textbook materials to work better for our students and for us. Creativity doesn’t mean creating everything from scratch! Learn how to adapt a textbook exercise to change the focus, add scaffolding, or make students more active, collaborative, or analytical. This session is intended for new teachers looking to build a successful and sustainable teaching career, as well as experienced teachers looking for new tips and tricks. The materials provided are based on Ecce Romani, but the ideas can be transferred to any textbook.
