A five-week institute for twenty-five middle and high school Latin teachers to contextualize the study of Latin language and Roman culture through on-site study of dwellings in and around Rome and in the region of Pompeii.

This proposal is for a five-week Summer Institute for 25 middle- and secondary-school teachers. The first week will be held at College of Notre Dame of Maryland and the last four weeks in Italy. Lectures and reading of literary and non-literary Latin texts will be complemented by visits to related sites. The theme of house and household will help to focus the experience on the reality of life in ancient Rome and the practical issues regarding property and personal relationships that resembled concerns of ours today. Teachers will design instructional materials for studying literature and archeology appropriate to beginning, intermediate or advanced Latin programs.
