"The program radically changed my perception of teaching Caesar's work and made me excited to share him with my students. By providing a wealth of relevant resources and the time to explore them, the Paideia Institute equipped me to present the wars in Gaul as a human struggle and Caesar's Commentaries as a way to shape how Romans saw that struggle. Our students are surrounded by competing messages that don't always "play fair"; they deserve to understand how to level that field of propaganda by deconstructing the work of a master."

"Caesar in Gaul was an amazing experience. To study Caesar in situ with like-minded teachers, to be instructed by two leading scholars (Chris Krebs and Luca Grillo), to be led by two experienced and motivated guides (Jason and Eric), and to explore key historical sites at a steady yet relaxed pace---all of these formed an unforgettable and inspiring experience. I will return to the classroom a better informed and more effective teacher."

"The ideal mix of academic discussions and downtime in beautiful settings across France provided the opportunity to appreciate Caesar's skill as an author as well as to learn from other Latin teachers. By the end of the program, I found myself eager to read of and about Caesar, an outcome I never thought possible. I returned from Caesar in Gaul energized as both a scholar and a teacher. I can't recommend it enough."
