My Date With CASIE (Part I)

This is the first of what will become two posts over a great program I was part of last Wednesday.  The reason I have split the post into two is simple.  This first post, a video of my entire lesson, is a lengthy engagement.  I don't want to ask more than that in this post.

CASIE's Speakeasy format is a lesson in a language taught in the target language.  This is my lesson, mostly inspired by my experience teaching in the TPRS and Communicative format.  Many teachers have asked me for examples of how I teach Latin via TPRS, and thanks to the generosity of CASIE and my participants, I now have a full-length beginning class to offer.

Analysis to follow in my second post.


  1. Rachel, I have now viewed this three times. As I prepare to teach a small homeschool group of 8 - 11 year olds, this kind of demonstration is incredibly helpful. Thank you so much for posting it!

    1. I am so glad it was helpful to you! I think it is really hard to visualize how to do this sort of thing without seeing it done.
