AP Latin Lit Meeting at CAMWS

The College Boards's recent cancellation of the Advanced Placement Latin Literature course and examination continues to be a major topic of discussion among Latin teachers. The 104th annual meeting of the Classical Association of the Middle West and South was held in Tucson this week and one of the evening sessions focused on the results of the 2007 Vergil and Latin Lit exams. Not surprisingly, there were many questions about how cancelling the exam will impact Classical education at the secondary and college level in the U.S. Andrew Reinhard of Eclassics attended the meeting and has an excellent un-official report and summary on his blog.
