Classics Graduate Student Takes Part in Panel on Teaching Latin

On Oct. 16, 2017, the Department of Greek & Roman Classics at Temple University hosted a discussion panel featuring representatives from the Paideia Institute for Humanistic Studies and Anthony Parenti, a Temple University alumnus ’14, former middle-school Latin teacher, and current graduate student in classics in the UK Department of Modern and Classical Languages, Literatures and Cultures. The panel spoke about literacy and social justice in the context of teaching Latin.

“Professors, undergraduates, and Latin teachers in Philadelphia attended the event to learn more about the panel’s compelling experiences,” Parenti said. “We had a meaningful discussion about the social importance of Latin in the 21st century.”

The Paideia Institute also gave a presentation about their Aequora initiative, an after-school enrichment program offered to students who would otherwise not have the opportunity to study Latin. Ed Schade, a master’s student in classics at the University of Kentucky, directs the Aequora branch in Lexington, Ky.
