I attended this year's American Classical League Institute and Annual Meeting held on the gorgeous campus of the Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. All things considered, it was a great conference with some good ol' fashioned Southern hospitality!
I particularly enjoyed the presentations on Vergil and using technology in the Latin classroom. It was good to hear about the new AP Latin syllabus (a future blog entry on that), the NJCL National Classics Exams, and the status of Latin in this "age of accountability."
Of course, the best part of attending is the opportunity to learn, share with colleagues, and network with those who love the same things you do. If you are a Latin teacher, you MUST join the American Classical League, an organization whose sole purpose is to support the teaching of Latin, Greek, and the Classics.
Next year ACL will be held in Minneapolis!
