Livingston, Ivy J. 2014. “Pro Cicerone: In Defense of Cicero in the Latin Classroom.” American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages. Program Abstract

This session presents a unit of study centered on the life and writings of Cicero, a pivotal figure in Roman history and one of the best-documented. Cicero’s life, intersecting with many of Rome’s best-known figures, provides a perfect point of access to many cultural themes, while engaging students with primary texts of undisputed virtuosity.

Livingston, Ivy J. 2013. “Classical to the Core: Latin as the Lynchpin to the Goals of the Standards.” American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages. Program Abstract

This session will illustrate project-based activities in which students become the makers of objects and texts that are shared not only among each other, but with their schools and communities. The projects and their Roman models (monuments, coins) will provide a lens through which students will engage with “big” issues of civic identity and image.
