Convener: Jay Lucci, CTL Graduate Fellow, Classics
Location: Classics Lounge, 2nd Floor Claudia Cohen Hall
Summary: This workshop will address the question of how to train students to read critically in a Classical Studies context. We will survey the distinctions between reading primary texts (in their original languages and in translation) and secondary texts (both those which themselves explicate primary sources and those less tied to specific texts), and we will discuss some practical techniques for teaching students to understand and take advantage of these distinctions.
All graduate students are welcome. This event grows out of concerns in the Classics department and so may be most useful to students in related fields.
Counts toward the CTL Teaching Certificate.
