I am joined by John Bracey, a Latin teacher, who uses CI very effectively with his students.  He also makes a strong case for all teachers to try out CI, including Latin teachers.

John speaks about...

  • his journey with CI and how he discovered it.
  • the linguistic benefits of CI. 
  • using CI to personalize language and connect with and validate students’ lived experiences.
  •  what CI looks like in his classroom.
  •  why Latin teachers should use CI.
