SLO Workshop & Annual Meeting
K.C. Kless, OCC Affiliate
Latin Teacher, Indian Hill Middle School
Latin teachers from around the state gathered on Saturday, September 21, at Granville High School to learn about and develop Student Learning Objectives. Sherwin Little of the American Classical League joined me in leading the learning at this workshop sponsored by the Ohio Classical Conference. Teachers collaborated, debated, discussed and ended the day with good work done. Thanks to all attendees for a successful workshop!
In addition, the Ohio Classical Conference’s annual meeting will be on Friday & Saturday, October 4 & 5, on the campus of Ohio University in Athens. OCC President Jim Andrews has put together a fine program, which is available on the OCC website, ohioclassicalconference.org. Topics will include new views on ancient poetry, technology tools in the classroom and featured undergraduate research. Also, a special new edition of Humanitas, the newsletter of the OCC, is available on the website.
