When Dead Tongues Speak introduces classicists to the research that linguists, psychologists, and language teachers have conducted over the past thirty years and passes along their most important insights. The essays cover a broad range of topics, including cognitive styles, peer teaching and collaboration, learning disabilities, feminist pedagogy, speaking, and writing. Each contributor addresses a different problem in the learning process based on his or her own teaching experience, and each chapter combines a theoretical overview with practical examples of classroom activities. The book was developed for classroom use in Greek and Latin methodology classes in M.A. and M.A.T. programs. It will also appeal to Latin and Greek language instructors who want to get current with the latest scholarship and pedagogical models.

Review: When Dead Tongues Speak: Teaching Beginning Greek and Latin

User Review  - Kelly Elmore - Goodreads

I skipped a few of the essays that didn't seem relevant to me, but most were very helpful. There was a lot of specific advice on how to branch out from the very traditional way I was taught Classics. Read full review
