via Nathalie Roy (Episcopal, Baton Rouge):

Our registration is up and running for the APSI this summer and we will be offering two Foreign Language courses.

AP Latin will run from Tuesday, June 18th to Friday, June 21st so that interested participants will not have a conflict with the ACL meeting in Memphis. Our instructor will be Mary Pendergraft of Wake Forest University who has experience as the Chief Reader for the AP Latin Exam.

AP Spanish Language and Composition will run from Monday, June 24th to Thursday, June 27th and will be taught by Thomas Soth. This will be an important course because it has just gone through redesign and May of 2014 will be the first year that the redesigned exam is administered.

You can register for these and our many other offerings at Any questions should be directed to Stephen Anderson at andersons AT ehsbr DOT org.

Those of you who are currently teaching Advanced Placement know that the exams are coming right around the corner!

Here’s a few AP-Vergil links for everyone

There are going to be some changes to the AP Latin course. Presumably we will learn more about them at the AP Institute at Episcopal High this summer.  Remember, deadline to register is June 1.

Dear colleagues – In response to the upcoming addition of Caesar to the Advanced Placement Latin curriculum, the APA Board in January endorsed the development of a preliminary bibliography to help AP Latin teachers prepare for their future teaching. As APA Vice President for Education, I appointed Board members John Marincola and Ann Vasaly to take on this task and am very appreciative of their efforts.
