    OVERVIEW

    Through an active and participatory approach, students will practise many didactic tools and develop an effective teaching strategy of Latin language and literature; they will also reflect on the meaning and the outcomes of the teaching of Classics.

    Didactic tools and teaching strategies will be put into practice by planning didactic units and activities cooperatively; ICT will also be taken into account. The course will focus on Latin, but references and comparisons with Ancient Greek will be frequent.

    AIMS AND CONTENT

    LEARNING OUTCOMES

    Students will practise many didactic tools and develop an effective teaching strategy of Latin language and literature; they will also reflect on the meaning and the outcomes of the teaching of Classics.

    AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

    At the end of this course, students will be able to:

    • Analyse the teaching context
    • Set the learning outcomes, by rebalancing the aims if necessary
    • Plan didactic units and activities
    • Identify and use the best technological tools
    • Improve their knowledge about assessment, monitoring and evaluation processes

    PREREQUISITES

    The issue about “how” and “why” Latin should be taught is closely related to “what” has to be taught. Therefore, a deep knowledge of Latin literature as well as full proficiency in Latin are mandatories.

    Students with scarce skills in Latin are invited to attend the translation Workshop organized in the first semester.

    TEACHING METHODS

    The course will have an active and participatory approach (workshop).  Didactic tools and teaching strategies will be put into practice by planning didactic units and activities cooperatively; ICT will also taken into account. The course will focus on Latin, but references and comparisons with Ancient Greek will be frequent.

    Lectures will take place in-person; attendance is mandatory (at least 75%). Students are encouraged to sign up to the AulaWeb webpage of the course, where materials and information will be shared throughout the term.
