Latin teachers and students:pencil

I am writing to request your participation in the National Latin Survey conducted by Teachers College, Columbia University. The purpose of this 10-20 minute survey is to hear from middle and high school students and teachers all across the United States and find out the many different reasons why people study and teach Latin. Your opinion is important because what you say may help authors write new Latin textbooks and provide Latin teachers with valuable information. To access the survey, please click one of the links below:



(Please copy and paste the links in your browser if they are not clickable.)

The last national survey of Latin students and teachers was conducted in the 1920s by the American Classical League. The long-term goals of the project are to produce at least two reports describing the findings; one report will be written for an audience of Latin teachers and the other report will be a full needs analysis study including all the statistical formulae for the applied linguistics community. These reports will be submitted to peer-reviewed journals and be made available to the public for free on the project website. Your participation in the survey is voluntary and your responses will be confidential. Students 12 and younger need parental consent to participate. If you are a teacher and would like your students to participate, please e-mail to request student surveys.

If you encounter any problems while taking the survey, please contact the principal investigator, Elliott Goodman at NationalLatinSurvey2013 AT gmail DOT com

Many thanks,
Elliott Goodman
Latin Teacher and Principal Investigator

Emelie J. St. Cyr (Granville, OH) has a survey and needs responses. Found via Latinteach listserv.

She writes:

I am currently working on my thesis which is a study of the use of technology in Classical Language Classrooms. I need for as many Latin or Greek teachers of all levels (K -University) to fill out a survey.

It is 12 questions long and should not take much of your time! Thank you!!

UNC-Greensboro seeking input re: online masters degree program for Latin teachers. Received via the Latinteach listserv:

Dear listmembers,

The Department of Classical Studies at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro is considering changing its current MEd in Latin into an on-line degree program in order to better serve the needs of Latin teachers.

To create an effective program, we need your feedback. If you would take a few minutes to complete a short online questionnaire we’d be most grateful. It should take you less than 5 minutes. Individual answers will be kept entirely confidential.

Here is a link to the questionnaire:

Please feel free to forward the link to anyone who might be interested in such a program. And apologies if you receive this message twice, as it’s being sent to multiple lists.

Thanks and best regards,

David Wharton
Director of Graduate Studies,
Department of Classical Studies
Director, Linguistics Program
The University of North Carolina at Greensboro
