Initiating Latin at KS 3 (and earlier)
A Classical Association Teaching Board & Manchester Classics for All INSET/CPD
University of Manchester, Saturday, 13th October, 2018, 10am-4.30pm
In recent years, organisations including Classics for All and the Iris project have enjoyed inspiring success in promoting the learning of Latin at primary and secondary schools where provision of classical languages had been non-existent or endangered. Building on the work of the Manchester Classics for All Project and previous CATB INSET events, this training day aims to promote the teaching of Latin (and Greek and Classics broadly) at an early stage of the school curriculum, not only for its own intrinsic interest and importance, but also for the transferable skills and possibilities that it makes available to young people. The event will appeal to several groups:
We anticipate that our event will include lectures on workshops on the following themes:
Speakers include: Steve Hunt (Cambridge University); John Taylor (University of Manchester) and other pioneering teachers of languages at KS 3. We hope that the major exam boards and publishers of classical textbooks will be represented at the event; there will be contributions from representatives of schools that have recently initiated Latin classes.
A registration fee (£4 unwaged; £8 waged) will be levied to cover costs.
We gratefully acknowledge the support of Manchester Classics for All, the University of Manchester and the Classical Association Teaching Board.
