Teaching Literacy with Latin

Expanding Access to Latin and Greek

The Paideia Institute partners with universities, schools, and community organizations to offer introductory Latin classes for elementary and middle school students. Our textbook, Aequora: Teaching Literacy with Latin, introduces the basics of Latin vocabulary and grammar, Roman culture and mythology, and connections between Latin, English, and Spanish, all through games and activities designed to show students that learning Latin is fun! The Aequora curriculum is shaped by a belief that everyone should have access to Latin and by a vision of Classics as an inclusive, diverse, and socially engaged field.

The Paideia Institute develops sites by working with: 

  • Public schools seeking to incorporate Latin in the school day curriculum.
  • Universities and high schools seeking to create service-learning opportunities in Classics.
  • After-school enrichment programs serving at-risk youth. 
  • Latin students who want to make a difference by volunteering to teach in their communities.
