The session will be an opportunity to discuss and explore strategies for teaching Roman history and relevant concepts effectively and in an engaging way to a mixed-ability GCSE group. This session will particularly focus on the Foundations of Rome longer period study and the Cleopatra depth study, but content will be relevant to the other depth studies as well.

A2: Sam Baddeley

This session will offer a brief overview of the Eduqas Latin Literature Theme A – A Day at the Races.

Please bring copies of the text if possible, along with any resources and ideas you are happy to share.

This session will involve the strategies and resources for teaching Ancient Greek over a limited time of two years. It will involve sharing strategies and resources that have worked to get students A*-C grades in the OCR GCSE (formerly ‘full’) course, how (and what) to prioritise in the teaching of the language and how to cover a set text in one term. There will also be time to action plan to overcome difficulties in different schools, to win over SLT, parents and students themselves.

A6: John Hazel
‘Read it Right’
This will be an opportunity for teachers who wish to extend their knowledge and practice of the oral side of teaching Latin to do so. There will be a chance to ask questions as well as to learn something of the phonetics of Classical Latin, and even to spend a little time on reading verse.

B3: Alan Chadwick
Using digital resources in the Latin classroom
An overview of new approaches to teaching and learning, including responsive quizzes, online flashcards, interactive videos, PLNs and other digital resources; using new technology to improve the way our pupils learn, rather than creating extra work for the teacher.

GCSE OCR Greek Prose Literature – Herodotus
In this session we will look at the GCSE Greek Herodotus set text passages particularly considering style and extended response questions. Please bring a copy of the text with you. 

B5: Julie Wilkinson

C3: Julie Wilkinson

We will look at strategies for preparing students for the English into Latin component of the A Level specification, building on their pre-existing knowledge from GCSE, and developing their confidence with grammatical analysis and recognition.

C4: Camille Brillaux
A Level OCR Classical Civilisation – Greek Art
This session is an opportunity to consider effective teaching strategies, including differentiation for mixed ability groups, for the A Level Classical Civilisation Greek Art module. Please bring ideas and resources to share.
