Richard Evans wins Able Media Award
AbleMedia salutes Richard L. S. Evans, a teacher at St. Thomas'
Episcopal School in Houston, Texas, this week with the AbleMedia
Bronze Chalice salute for his submission of "Greek Too: The
Recovery of Greek in American Schools" to the Classics
Technology Center on the Web (CTCWeb), http://ablemedia.com/ctcweb/showcase/evans1.html.
Evans describes the historical role of Latin and Greek in
Classics curricula and a means by which Latin teachers can
reintroduce ancient Greek into modern curricula via Latin class.
Evans refers to this method of including the study of ancient
Greek in Latin curricula as "Greek-by-inclusion."
Brushing up on their Greek, determining appropriate places in
class to introduce the language, and deciding at what course level
the links between Greek and Latin should be demonstrated are just
a few suggestions Evans provides educators on preparing to
introduce students to ancient Greek. Evans reinforces his advice
and guidance on his "Greek-by-inclusion" method with
links to educational Website containing resources to support the
introduction of ancient Greek into the modern Latin classroom.
As always, we welcome and encourage submissions to CTCWeb of a
wide range of materials for the benefit of the education
