Overview of the Program:
This program has been designed for students wishing to pursue the teaching of Latin in grades preK-12. The CWRU Classics Department has designed this program in accordance with Ohio Performance-Based Standards, the Ohio Model Curriculum in Foreign Language, and guidelines set by professional organizations such as ACTFL.
Students participating in the Teacher Education program complete a major in Latin, including coursework in the anguage, culture, and literature, and a 34-hour sequence in professional education. Coursework in Latin begins in the freshman year with a language course appropriate to the student’s proficiency level. It continues until the student has completed a range of upper-level courses and has met the goals of the program.
Students are strongly encouraged to complete some of their coursework in a French-speaking country, and students are assisted in identifying opportunities for study abroad. Students wishing to study abroad should seek early advisment to be able to complete the French and Education majors within four years.
Professional education courses can begin in the freshman year and culminate with the student teaching semester.
