Excellence Through Classics for Elementary and Middle School Students

The Excellence Through Classics Committee of the American Classical League has created a new Yahoo email discussion group, ETClassics to focus discussion and ideas on teaching Classics to middle school and elementary school students. This new list is dedicated to exploring methodologies, activities, and theories that can be applied to Classics-related courses at the middle school and elementary levels.

Topics will include articulation of Latin and Greek through the grades, activities for mythology, culture, and language acquisition, language and general teaching methodologies, Classics promotion, and general teaching support for and from peers.

The goal of this group is open sharing of ideas and thoughts related to teaching the Classics in the lower grades.
