About this course
Have you studied Greek in the past and want a refresher with a communicative component? Or are you interested in improving your competence in reading ancient Greek texts? Miraglia & Bórri's edition of Athenaze (Balme & Lawall) offers a plethora of stories organized by degrees of difficulty that can help us achieve these goals. We will start from the first chapter and discuss all the grammar and vocabulary points covered in the textbook. The instructor will suggest (but not require) some written exercises from the Meletēmata workbook, or other sources, that will help develop all four skills. The instructor will give feedback and open discussion on these or any other topics related to teaching ancient Greek with C.I. methodology or through the ‘natural’ method.
What is Telepaideia?
Telepaideia is a broad collection of online courses, offered by the Paideia Institute in 10-week semesters three times a year (Fall, Spring, and Summer terms). These live classes are each designed and led by a dedicated teacher from the Paideia community and are taught in small groups of approximately five or fewer. Students can select and directly enroll in Telepaideia courses on a wide range of topics related to Latin, Greek, and the Classical humanities, according to both their personal interests and previous learning experiences. Course offerings change from semester to semester, but generally include language classes (at various levels and intensities), reading classes, and classes dedicated to intellectual history and Classical reception.
What to expect from this course
Our online Telepaideia courses meet synchronously in small groups of no more than five students to promote an engaged, supportive learning environment. Our instructors are based all over the world, but class times are typically scheduled outside of working hours in the Eastern Time zone. Scheduling accommodations can be made at the instructor's discretion.
