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 language, culture, and literature, and a 36-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.
Professional education courses can begin in the freshman year and culminate with the student teaching semester.
