A Farewell Message from Pompeiiana Newsletter, Then and Now

It is not without some sadness that the Pompeiiana Newsletter blog project comes to a close. I have, for the better part of the past 13 months, posted five issues per week of Dr. Bernard Barcio's labor of love, his Pompeiiana Newsletter, which ran from 1974 until the end of the 2002-2003 school year. It is my hope that Latin teachers, students, and enthusiasts, will continue to return to this

Latinum has moved!

Omnes,

 

Due to the recent struggles with MyPodcast, our own Molendinarius has moved his Latinum site to http://latinum.org.uk.  This change has been reflected in our links section as well.  Please check this out, it's a very useful site.

 

Remember, if you have something that you would like to share with the members here, please send me a message and you can be a "guest" poster.


Pax,

Matthew Paul-Frank Duran

January Answer for Roman Calendar

If you have not already done so, check the inside back cover of our 2015-16 Roman Calendar for a reproducible worksheet that asks students to engage with the mythology-oriented artwork included in the calendar.

For those completing the worksheet, here is January's image, question, and answer.

Question: What other gods are commonly depicted with a full beard and long hair? How can you identify which god is shown here?

Answer: Jupiter, Bacchus, and Neptune and other water deities, such as Tiberinus, were commonly depicted with full beards. The trident and the attendant holding a conch shell identify him as Neptune.

Think your students know the answer to the January question on the worksheet? Tweet @BCPublishers the answer by February 25th for a chance to win five of our new buttons. We'll announce our answers, as well as the winner, at the beginning of March. Submit an answer for your class, or better yet, encourage students to participate individually.

Greek Beats: Greek Grammar Set to Catchy Electronic Music

Like Toga Beats did for Latin, these tracks of Greek grammar, set to catchy electronic music and lyrics, make the Greek stick in your head like a favorite song!

Purchase the Greek Beats Complete Collection, which includes all twenty-one tracks and the lyrics sheet. Purchase the individual tracks as needed in your Greek classroom. (Purchase links on the Greek Beats Complete Collection page.) Purchase the Karaoke Collection to tap into your creativity and your student's creativity. 


The karaoke version, available for purchase separately, contains the music from all twenty-one tracks without the lyrics. Make sure to create an account before purchasing to be able to access downloads for multiple devices. 


Download the first track FREE!


Available as individual tracks or download all twenty-one at a reduced price.

December Answer for Roman Calendar Worksheet

If you have not already done so, check the inside back cover of our 2015-16 Roman Calendar for a reproducible worksheet that asks students to engage with the mythology-oriented artwork included in the calendar.

For those completing the worksheet, here is December’s image, question, and answer.

Question: Aside from the lyre, how can you identify this as Apollo?

Answer: The crown of laurel combined with the youthful appearance and the beardless, smooth face indicate that this is Apollo.

Think your students know the answer to the January question on the worksheet? Tweet @BCPublishers the answer by January 25th for a chance to win five of our new buttons. We’ll announce our answers, as well as the winner, at the beginning of February. Submit an answer for your class, or encourage students to participate individually.

November Answer for Roman Calendar Worksheet

If you have not already done so, check the inside back cover of our 2015-16 Roman Calendar for a reproducible worksheet that asks students to engage with the mythology-oriented artwork included in the calendar.

For those completing the worksheet, here is November’s image, question, and answer.

Question: Can you identify this sculpture as Diana based on the detail image of her head? What other elements do you think the full sculpture contains that identify the goddess as Diana?

Answer: The crescent moon crown identifies the goddess as Diana. The full statue features a quiver with arrows, a stag, and a skirt shortened to knee-length to make hunting easier, all of which further identify the sculpture as Diana.


Think your students know the answer to the December question on the worksheet? Tweet @BCPublishers the answer by December 25th for a chance to win five of our new buttons.

Ubi Fera Sunt: Where the Wild Things Are in Latin

Bolchazy-Carducci Publishers is proud to announce the arrival of Ubi Fera Sunt, the first published Latin translation (by Richard A. LaFleur) of the beloved children's story Where the Wild Things Are, by Maurice Sendak. This lively translation faithfully and playfully recasts Sendak’s unique writing style into classical Latin. It includes the beautifully remastered images employed in the fiftieth anniversary edition. Where the Wild Things Are has been published in numerous other languages, including French, German, Spanish, Hebrew, and even Finnish, but never until now into classical Latin.

Richard A. LaFleur, a.k.a. Doctor Illa Flora, has provided resources to enhance the classroom experience for his Latin translation. "Why NOT a Latin Wild Things" offers insight as to why LaFleur decided to translate Sendak's work and his hopes that "this modern rendering of his . . . charming classic" will join the Latin canon alongside other children's classics such as Winne Ille Pu and Cattus Petasatus. LaFleur has also provided an "About the Translation" resource to explain his always correct, but at times "Sendakian," choices in Latin. "Pronouncing Latin" gives Latin readers a refresher on pronunciation, while it also serves as a great tool for those learning and new to Latin. Lastly, LaFleur offers a glossary of all the Latin words employed in his translation. These resources are all designed to make Ubi Fera Sunt as effective a classroom component as it is a fun one.
