Share Your Halloween Fun
October is right around the corner, which means it’s time for Bolchazy-Carducci’s annual Halloween costume contest, Dolus aut Dulce! In past years, we’ve received entries that relied on witty wordplay, sublime clothing-design skills, and everything in between. This year, we are adding a new category to the contest: we now invite you to submit pictures of your Halloween-themed classics classroom in addition to photos of classically themed costumes.
We are also expanding the ways in which you can participate in the contest. You can choose the original method of submission: follow @BCPublishers on Twitter and then tweet us your photo using the hashtag #BCPub. Or, you can like us on Facebook and submit your photo entry on our page timeline. Remember, there are two entry categories: costume photos and classroom decoration photos. The winner in each category will receive a choice of either ten paperback copies of the Grinch (in Latin) or a $50 book credit.

Report on the 2019 Illinois Classical Conference (ICC) Meeting
The 2019 ICC annual meeting took place at Augustana College in Rock Island, Illinois, October 11–13. Many thanks to the Augustana faculty and ICC board members who planned such a wonderful weekend, replete with excellent presentations and workshops!
Editor Amelia Wallace represented Bolchazy-Carducci at ICC 2019. Conference attendees frequented the B-C booth in order to check out recent titles as well as revisit the variety of educational materials on display. This year, many were particularly interested in culture, mythology, and etymology enrichment resources. The novice-level “I Am Reading Latin Stories” series and translations of popular children’s books also drew attention. Conference-goers had the opportunity to win B-C’s newest book, Latin of Science, an anthology of influential scientific texts that were originally written and published in Latin. Congratulations to Trenton Ferro, professor emeritus at Indiana University of Pennsylvania, who won the book drawing!
Bolchazy-Carducci occupied three tables in the ICC book room,
right across the hall from where the conference talks took place.
Amelia Wallace presents Trenton Ferro,
winner of the ICC book drawing, with Latin of Science.
Amelia was able to attend several fascinating presentations this year at ICC, including talks on classical reception and Latin pedagogy. She also relished the opportunity to present on the use of Latin in constructed languages in her talk, “From Lingua Ignota to Esperanto: Latin in Conlangs” (stay tuned for a series of blog posts on this subject!). After a long day on Saturday, October 12, everyone enjoyed the chance to chat over dinner at the banquet, which was held at Me & Billy in Davenport, Iowa. As always, one of the highlights of the banquet was the giving of awards. Kudos to Anna Reiff of Stagg High School in Palos Heights, Illinois, who was named Farrand Baker Illinois Latin Teacher of the Year. Kudos as well to Virginia Anderson, who was honored with the ICC Lifetime Achievement Award.
Once again, many thanks to all who made ICC 2019 such a success!
Report on the 2019 Classical Association of the Atlantic States (CAAS) Meeting
Metropolitan Washington, DC, hosted the 2019 CAAS annual meeting at the Sheraton in downtown Silver Spring, Maryland. Editor Don Sprague joined some 160 classicists for two days, October 11 and 12, chockfull of lectures, ovationes, panels, presentations, culinary delights, camaraderie, and conversation. Executive Director Mary Brown of St. Joseph’s University, once again, worked her magic in ensuring wonderfully stocked breakfasts and break feasts along with lush lunches and a delicious banquet. Program Coordinator Maria Marsilio, also of St. Joseph’s University, and her program committee lined up an impressive roster of speakers from the CAAS territory and from across the country and the Atlantic Ocean.
The Bolchazy-Carducci display enjoyed a prime location
just inside the doors to the exhibit room.
B-C regularly distinguishes “new” and “best seller” titles with a bookmark. For CAAS 2019, books by authors from the CAAS territory displayed a “CAAS Author” bookmark. This photo captures a representative sample of such books.
Strategically located opposite the break catering options, the exhibit room housed a number of classics organizations and Bolchazy-Carducci Publishers, whose five tables made for a handsome display of the company’s books and various teaching materials. Half-hour breaks gave ample time for munching, chatting, and book browsing. Attendees who regularly buy our buttons with Latin and Greek aphorisms purchased replacements early so as not to be disappointed that someone else had bought one of their favorites. The new titles They Said It First, Scarborough’s First Lessons in Greek, and The Latin of Science—offered as prizes for the CAAS book drawing—drew significant attention. Several professors look forward to the Companion Volume to The Latin of Science and the opportunity to teach a mixed class—students with Latin who will use the primary volume and those without Latin who will use the Companion Volume and be expected to report back to the class on the JSTOR articles suggested for each Latin reading. Several professors stocked up on materials for their community outreach programs and their classical civilization classes.
While staffing the book display required most of Don’s time, he took a break to attend the engaging and thought-provoking presidential plenary session entitled “Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion / Racism, Marginalization, and Exclusion: A Frank Discussion on the Past and Future of Classics in the Academy” with CAAS President John H. Starks, Jr., presiding and panelists Shelley Haley (president-elect of the Society for Classical Studies) of Hamilton College, Arti Mehta of Howard University, and Dan-El Padilla Peralta of Princeton University. This session was one of four dedicated to inclusion and antiracism including two entitled “Building and Implementing Racial Competence: A 21st Century Skill for Educators and Students.” Don looks forward to following up with American Classical League Executive Director Sherwin Little who attended these sessions.
The Jerry Clack Lecture featured Bruce Frier, the John and Teresa D’Arms Distinguished University Professor of Classics and Roman Law at the University of Michigan. His fascinating talk “Common Things: The Mysterious Seashore” discussed the Roman antecedents of current law about the shoreline with specific attention to a court case involving Lake Michigan and property lines.
CAAS 2019 ovationes were delivered in honor of Diana Jensen of the Maret School, Arthur Eckstein of the University of Maryland, College Park, and Elizabeth Fisher of George Washington University. CAAS investment advisor Walter Schwenk, who has carefully and successfully invested CAAS’s endowment funds, was honored with a gratulatio.
The energy and the enthusiasm of the CAAS attendees and their commitment to change were all inspiring. Congratulations to CAAS on a meeting well executed.
Hugh McElroy, of the Field School in Silver Spring, graciously displays
the books he received as winner of the B-C book drawing at CAAS.
Guest Reflection on Latin Pedagogy:
An AP Latin Program, Part 1
Advanced Placement Latin is a program of Latin study, not a single exam. The course of study begins in Latin 1 and advances each year until its capstone, the exam at the end of the final year. Right from the earliest days in Latin, teachers can integrate into their instructional plans the goals that help students become an advanced reader of Latin. For example: Students can
  • draw upon knowledge of grammar and syntax.
  • analyze (in writing or discussion) Latin that is both adapted and unadapted. (Analyze in the early stages simply means to designate what case something is and why.)
  • use specific terminology to identify grammatical forms.
  • comprehend previously unseen text (sight work).
    Are these the goals you have for your students?
Are these the goals you have for your students?
Latin for the New Millennium, Level 1 has as its first reading Romulus et Remus.
Mārs est deus. Mārs Rhēam Silviam amat. Itaque Rhēa Silvia duōs fīliōs habet: Rōmulum et Remum. Amūlius Rhēam Silviam vinculīs claudit. Amūlius Rōmulum et Remum in aquam pōnit. Lupa ad aquam ambulat. Lupa Rōmulum et Remum bene cūrat et amat. Rōmulus et Remus crēscunt. Posteā Rōmulus et Remus Rōmam aedificant.
This is an adapted reading for a beginning student. In order to tie the comprehension questions to the text expected in an AP short answer or essay, you could ask the student:
  1. Whose sons are Romulus and Remus (lines 1–2) AND what Latin words tell you that?
  2. Translate the phrase vinculīs claudit (lines 2–3) and identify the part of speech of claudit.
In an effort to integrate previously unseen text early in the student's learning you might use Ritchie’s Fabulae Faciles along with your primary series. This book, originally printed in 1931 by Longman, is available through The Latin Library. Take a look at chapter 1, the Perseus chapter.
Haec nārrantur ā poētīs dē Perseō. Perseus fīlius erat Iōvis, maximī deōrum; avus eius Acrisius appellābātur. Acrisius volēbat Perseum nepōtem suum necāre; nam propter ōrāculum puerum timēbat. Comprehendit igitur Perseum adhuc īnfantem, et cum mātre in arcā ligneā inclūsit. Tum arcam ipsam in mare coniēcit. Danaë, Perseī māter, magnopere territa est; tempestās enim magna mare turbābat. Perseus autem in sinū mātris dormiēbat.
In order to implement exposure to higher-level short answer questions early in the student's learning, questions might be as follows.
  1. In line 2 (Acrisius . . . necāre) what did Acrisius want to do?
  2. Tum . . . coniēcit (line 4) tells us what about the box?
  3. Discuss Acrisius and his relationship with Perseus. Use Latin to support the sentences you write.
(Discuss at this level means to write two sentences. Support means to give the Latin words that tell why you made those statements.) When you continue to ask discussion questions and ask for specific Latin words, you are teaching the student to become comfortable with the essay requirement that appears on the AP exam: BE SURE TO REFER SPECIFICALLY TO THE LATIN THROUGHOUT BOTH PASSAGES TO SUPPORT THE POINTS YOU MAKE IN YOUR ESSAY.
It seems appropriate to ask the student to give Latin support for any questions in order to remove the practice of random guessing at the answers. This is close reading of Latin text from the very start. And, of course, providing documentation is a key critical thinking skill useful in all academic disciplines.
I am heartily endorsing the idea that beginning in year one, it is our responsibility as teachers to show students how to reach; to encourage them to look out ahead at being proficient at Latin and not consider the first year or second as not as important as the "advanced" year. We teachers are the guides who both inspire and encourage students to become Latin scholars. Whether they read about Romulus and Remus or Perseus, they are experiencing firsthand the Latin literary tradition and will be confidently ready for and looking forward to their adventure with Aeneas and journey with Caesar.
