Ascanius: The Youth Classics Institute has received a generous grant from Excellence Through Classics to provide free programming (usually in the form of a half-day workshop) introducing students in urban and rural schools (and schools in select other areas of the country) to Latin, ancient Roman civilization, and/or word study. I'm hoping to enlist your help in finding a school or schools that would benefit from this free programming. It might even be your school. There is a (brief) application process. Please share this information with colleagues who might be interested - a recommendation from you as to the quality of the programming from Ascanius: The Youth Classics Institute could be very helpful in encouraging schools to apply.

MOSAIC: Linking Languages and Content - The Center for Applied Second Language Studies (CASLS) at the University of Oregon is proud to make available to second language teachers an exciting collection of content-based curricular materials in French, Spanish and Japanese. The MOSAIC project, carried out over the 2003-2005 academic years, produced a variety of thematic units that incorporate Geography (in Spanish) and History (in Japanese), with contributions by researchers and teachers at the high school and university levels. Each language team was made up of one university-level content specialist (professor), one university-level language teacher, one high-school content specialist (social studies) and one high-school language teacher. The role of the content specialists is to identify relevant source materials and to ensure that the unit lessons include accurate and up-to-date content and methods of the discipline. The language specialists are responsible for assuring the pedagogical and linguistic quality of the materials, keeping in mind the special challenges of learning new content in a second language. We invite you and your students to explore MOSAIC at http://casls.uoregon.edu/mosaic/.
