Forming the Whole Reader
fresh tasks, tools, and techniques for
building Latin literacy from day one
♦ What does it mean to be a skilled Latin reader, and what obstacles stand in the way of teachers and learners pursuing this goal?
♦ How can we create environments and tasks that help students of all kinds become comfortable, skilled, joyful Latin readers?
Join Justin for a fresh take on these questions and an array of research-informed, classroom-tested techniques and tasks that build Latin literacy, no matter your students' age or level!
*To register for MittenLatin: Forming the Whole Reader, you must first register for MittenCI ($95 / $45 for student teachers and professors attending with students), even if you do not plan to attend the main conference. You can then use this form to register for the pre-conference, selecting "LatinCI with Justin Slocum Bailey."
"Justin Slocum Bailey is the ultimate educator. He brings to every one of his pursuits extensive knowledge, curiosity about both language and people, a sense of humor, and an extraordinary ability to connect. As I strive to improve my own teaching, I try to channel what I have seen in him. He is thorough, clear, exciting, talented, interesting, and fun."
