This book is therefore remarkable in its design, particularly for trainees but also newly qualified and more experienced teachers and practitioners looking for practical ideas and strategies to motivate and mobilize Latin learners. * Euroclassica (Bloomsbury Translation) *
This is a book that should interest all our colleagues who teach Latin, language, literature and civilization at all levels. * Anabases (Bloomsbury Translation) *
This is a terrific book. Steven Hunt is thoroughly familiar with the different methods, approaches, and resources used both in the UK and the US, and the book is brimful of all his experience as teacher-trainer and as gifted teacher himself. Especially illuminating are the case-studies, often involving transcripts of real lessons, giving examples of good practice and also of well-intentioned attempts that go slightly wrong: he analyses these with sympathy, deftness, and insight. It all made me wish I was fifteen again, and taught by Hunt or one of his trainees. Every early-career Latin teacher will treasure this book - and many not-so-early-career ones too. -- Christopher Pelling is Regius Professor Emeritus of Greek at Oxford University, UK.
Starting to teach Latin is unique in bringing together a variety of aspects of Latin teaching not brought together elsewhere. It not only provides important background information on the place of Latin in schools today but also presents thought-provoking discussions of practical pedagogy. Coming at a time of increasing interest in Latin and Classics in schools, this book will offer significant food for thought for prospective and experienced teachers alike. -- Aisha Khan-Evans is Classics PGCE Subject Director at King's College London, UK.
