The CiRCE Institute’s Summer Latin Intensive is designed to provide additional professional development to new teachers or teachers new to the active language classroom. Educators who attend this intensive study under a CiRCE Head Mentor for five days in Kannapolis, NC in the new beautiful facility of the CiRCE Institute.

Participants begin the week with an overview of the history and modes of language instruction. The next four days guide teachers through the activites of teaching Latin actively using all four language faculties: reading, writing, listening, and speaking. The day is divided by an instructional morning session followed by lunch at the institute. Participants spend the afternoons practicing the skills studied during the morning sessions.

By the end of the week, each participant will have attended to the principles of active language instruction learning how to study and teach words-in-context.
