AP Latin in Standish

Long time Maine Classicist Jill Crooker will be hosting a workshop at St. Joseph’s College in Standish this summer, July 15-20, for AP Latin teachers. Click here for more information and Jill’s contact info, if you’re interested. Oh, and you get some lobster!

In 2013 there was the first administration of what was then called “the new AP Latin”. We will look back at each exam and determine what we see in the essay questions as well as how the short answer questions have developed. We will dissect the test format and practice scoring some of each type of free response question (literal translation, short answer & essay). We will read excerpts from both Vergil’s Aeneid and Caesar’s De Bello Gallico and talk about & develop instructional strategies for themes and contextualization.

This week is intended to help both new and experienced teachers have any & all questions about teaching the course answered AND prepare and share materials which integrate the question types into everyday instruction. Participants are encouraged to bring a laptop or a flash drive.
