I love teaching, and I enjoy sharing how I have improved my teaching methods and strategies. This blog is dedicated to sharing my ideas about teaching so that you can develop your own ideas. I do not claim to be an expert educator or the most adept at teaching Latin and Classics in the 21st Century, but I will offer honest reflections about my own experience and ideas. I will also discuss some ideas about teaching Latin and Classics based on my reading about teaching in order to improve my own pedagogy.
In each post, I will present some background to the idea, the practical aspect of how I implemented (or would implement) the idea, and the pros and cons of the idea. I will try to be as honest and factual as possible, in order to minimize the anecdotal, speculative, and hopeful nature of this endeavor.
I also invite you to join me in this journey. Please share your reactions to these ideas either in the comments sections or in a private message to me. I would especially love to hear about your similar experiences and successes! Everyone brings their own great perspectives and personalities with them into the classroom, so I would greatly appreciate the feedback and hearing your insights too!
Please join me as I share my thoughts on Thursdays.
