Welcome to my shop, which I'll be filling with language/lit/ed-tech resources. I'm also interested in 3D virtual worlds, and some of the resources I'm developing now are about how to use these exciting environments.

Latin Inscription Translation Project

Latin Inscription Translation Project

(0)
This resource has students translating a number of inscriptions from the Ancient Roman world. Many of the inscriptions are about gladiators, because this tends to be an exciting topic for middle and high school students. I provide ample vocabulary so that students can figure out the abbreviations in the inscriptions. This activity also has students creating their own inscriptions and thinking about their cultural importance. It's great for group work or a whole class activity. This resource is suitable for intermediate or advanced Latin students, but you should provide help where needed based on your class's expertise with Latin. Give me some feedback on Twitter @gabrieljbaker and let me know if you'd like to see more resources like this.
Virgil's Latin on American Symbols

Virgil's Latin on American Symbols

(0)
This resource is for intermediate or advanced Latin students, but will be appropriate and interesting for beginning students if help from the teacher is provided. Students will explore how Virgil's Latin is used on a few American symbols: the great seal on the dollar bill, the state seal of Oklahama, and the state seal of Colorado. Students will learn about the original context of Virgil's Latin as well. Let me know on twitter @gabrieljbaker if you'd like to see more resources like this!
Latin Translation: Martial's Epigrams

Latin Translation: Martial's Epigrams

(0)
This resource is for intermediate/advanced Latin students. It includes ten of Martial's epigrams in Latin with provided vocabulary. I recommend having students learn a little about this astonishing Roman author before they try to translate these epigrams. The first few epigrams I've included mostly in English, with just a little Latin to translate. The few at the end are entirely in Latin and may be challenging without help from the teacher. Suggestion: Bring your sense of humor to class on the day you use this resource!
