What is this all about anyway?
I am able to write this blog and go on my Roman adventure thanks to Fund For Teachers. Over Christmas I wrote a 10 page grant detailing how I wanted to travel to Rome to take a Latin course in order to increase my ability to help my students with their vocabulary comprehension skills. In addition, while I am there I proposed that I take photographs and create a graphic novel, in Comic Life, about the Roman empire for my 9th graders Global Studies classroom.
I won (certainly making the writing the grant and puling out my hair over Christmas break well worth it). I will begin my adventure on Monday, July 21 and you will be able to follow me along the way.
I will blog about all the cool Latin instruction ideas I get from nifty Latin instructor and post photos of the historical locations in Rome. Hopefully I will return with an arsenal of teaching ideas and a photographic account of the Roman Empire.
Read often, comment often and enjoy often.
