On Antimony in Pipes and Pompeii: Yeah … About That

Yesterday evening came the first word of a study bringing up the old idea of ‘lead and the downfall of Rome’ with a different twist. Specifically, that it wasn’t lead that was a big deal at Pompeii, but rather antimony, which can have all sorts of nasty ill effects in various contexts.  It is rather … Continue reading On Antimony in Pipes and Pompeii: Yeah … About That

When I was an undergrad, one of the favourite phrases I picked up along the way was the captatio benevolentiae, which, as most folks reading this blog will know, involves a speaker saying good/complimentary things to their audience in order to ‘get them on his/her side’ early on. It was a common technique in ancient … Continue reading Captationes ~ Modern Politics Linking to the Past

2016-2017 Year in Review



Bolchazy-Carducci: A Year in Review


Mox nox! As the autumnal equinox approaches and the sun sets earlier each day, we are looking back at the past year and ahead to the year to come. The past twelve months have been full of new books, conferences, and contests—and, of course, birthday cakes!

A Fond Farewell. The Bolchazy-Carducci family bids a fond farewell to Connor Hart as he returns to Massachusetts and pursues further studies. Connor joined B-C following his graduation from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst where he studied classics and English. After a year as an intern, Connor joined the staff as social media and editorial assistant. Connor has done terrific work developing B-C’s social media—writing blogs, creating Martia Dementia, assembling the Roman Calendar and its quiz components, posting on Facebook, and tweeting.

Level one of the second edition of Milena Minkova
and Terence Tunberg's Latin for the New Millennium.
New Books. It’s been a busy year at B-C! The second edition of Latin for the New Millennium, Levels 1 and 2, features a richer focus on English derivatives study as well as additional exercises based on teacher suggestions. The LNM Teachers’ Lounge offers printable versions of the new content for first edition users. Word Mastery through Derivatives: Designed for Students of Latin provides students the skills and practice to apply word-building analysis to their study of both Latin vocabulary and English derivatives. A Latin Picture Dictionary for Everyoneasks the learner to make a ready connection between an image and its corresponding Latin word, with illustrated exercises that provide an opportunity for students to internalize the Latin vocabulary. Plotinus on Beauty and Reality: A Reader for Enneads I.6 and V.1 makes accessible to intermediate Greek students two treatises that describe the Neoplatonic cosmos of Plotinus. A new edition of Medieval Mosaic features seven new passages as well as 41 new illustrations. The Festschrift Ab omni parte beatus: Classical Essays in Honor of James M. May celebrates James M. May, Professor of Classics at Saint Olaf College, on the occasion of his retirement.

Richard LaFleur, a.k.a. Doctor Illa Flora
autographs Ubi Fera Sunt.
Conferences. Bolchazy-Carducci staff and other representatives exhibited and met with teachers and students across the United States and in Canada this past year. Look for us at upcoming conferences! Stevenson High School in Lincolnshire hosted the Illinois Classical Conference’s October meeting. The meetings of the Texas Foreign Language Association (Austin, TX), Classical Association of the Atlantic States (New Brunswick, NJ), Classical Association of the Middle West and South Southern Section (Decatur, GA), Classical Association of the Empire State (Schenectady, NY), and Texas Classical Association(Waco, TX) followed soon after. The fall conference season concluded with the meeting of the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (Boston, MA) and the Virginia Junior Classical League Convention(Richmond, VA). The 2017 conference season began with the Archaeological Institute of America and Society for Classical Studies Joint Annual Meeting (Toronto, ON), followed by meetings of the Classical Association of New England (Exeter, NH), the International Congress on Medieval Studies (Kalamazoo, MI), the American Classical League (Grand Rapids, MI), and the National Junior Classical League Convention (Troy, AL).


Contests. Many of our conferences featured fishbowl drawings. Winners took home book bundles that included some of our brand new titles from the past year. The second annual Dolus aut Dulce? Halloween costume contest allowed teachers, students, and entire classrooms from around the world to show off their classics-inspired creativity and featured deities, demigods, Hannibal, and Medusa. Our third annual Martia Dementia contest pitted deities against mortals, and in the final round Caesar triumphed over Zeus with a 431–54 victory.  Thomas Howard of St. Ignatius College Prep-Chicago, IL, took home the glory and spoils with the winning bracket. Follow us on Twitterand Facebook so that you never miss out on a chance to win B-C prizes.

Founder’s Day. On July 21, the B-C staff and old colleagues assembled for a special lunch to celebrate our late founder Dr. Ladislaus “Lou,” a.k.a. “Laci” or “Lacko,” J. Bolchazy. The celebration concluded with a trivia contest about Dr. Lou and his beloved B-C. Marie Bolchazy, president, and Allan Bolchazy, vice president, served as judges for the contest. Editor Don Sprague, Mike Frazier from shipping, and Jody Cull, production and eLearning manager, emerged trivia triumphant.


<picture of Marie, Laurie, and Allan from July 25 Facebook post; caption: Honored guests at the 2017 Founder’s Day included retired editor Laurie Keenan (pictured with Marie Bolchazy and Allan Bolchazy) and her husband Jim who first met Lou when he interviewed for a one-year appointment at Loyola University Chicago.

Looking Ahead. The 2017–2018 year offers new opportunities for students and teachers to enter our Dolus aut Dulce? and Martia Dementia contests and to sign up for fishbowl drawings for a chance to win a book bundle at upcoming conferences. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and our blog for the latest updates on new books, conferences, contests, and more.

July Answer for Roman Calendar

The 2016–2017 Roman Calendar offers full-color images for each month featuring a chapter title page from Latin for the New Millennium, Levels 1 and 2, Second Edition, alongside the ever-popular sententiae. The calendar also contains information about our latest books, longtime favorites, apps, and more. Check the inside back cover for a reproducible worksheet that asks students to engage with the artwork included in the calendar.

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

Question:
Eheu . . . fugācēs lābuntur annī! The Roman poet Horace makes this expression of grief in his Odes 2.14.1. What English words derive from Horace’s Latin?

Answer: 
Fugācēs, from the Latin fugax, "fleeting, elusive" is related to fugiō and brings to English such words as "fugitive," "refuge," and "centrifugal." Lābuntur, from labor meaning "to slip" gives the English language words such as "relapse," "prolapse" and "elapse." Lastly annī, from annus, "year" provides us with words such as "annual," "millennium," and "superannuated."


To add your name to our mailing list for the 2017–2018 Roman Calendar, email orders@bolchazy.com with the subject line “Roman Calendar”; be sure to include your name and mailing address in the body of the email. Also, let us know by email if you have not received your calendar yet!

Think your students know the answer to the August question on the worksheet? Tweet @BCPublishers the answer by August 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 September. Submit an answer for your class, or better yet, encourage students to participate individually.


August Answer for Roman Calendar

If you have not already done so, check the inside back cover of our 2016–2017 Roman Calendar for a reproducible worksheet that asks students to engage with the derivative-oriented artwork included in the calendar.

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

Question: Iacta ālea est.
These words, reportedly said by Julius Caesar when he crossed the Rubicon, are documented in Suetonius’s The Life of Julius Caesar. Can you think of any English words that derive from Suetonius’s Latin?



Answer:
Iacta, from the Latin verb meaning "to throw," gives the English language words such as "conjecture," "objective," and "projectile." Alea, meaning "dice" brings us the word "aleatory." Sum, the first person singular form of the Latin verb "to be" provides us with words such as "entity," "omnipresent," and "represent."

To add your name to our mailing list for the 2017–2018 Roman Calendar, email orders@bolchazy.com with the subject line “Roman Calendar”; be sure to include your name and mailing address in the body of the email. Also, let us know by email if you have not received your calendar yet!



Caesar Wins: A Recap of Martia Dementia 2017


Hades got the victory over Athena and like, about half of the participants ripped their brackets in half. Cicero felled last year's champion Homer in the second round and finalist Augustus exited in the third. The door seemed wide open at this point but Zeus, ruler of the skies, and Caesar, ruler of everything on earth, proved most determined to advance to the finals. Advance they did, but int he end there could be only one, and that one was Caesar who, with a 431–54 victory, made history by becoming the third winner of Martia Dementia! Much like previous years, many narratives came out of the bracket as voting created conflict between these authors, philosophers, political figures, and gods, and there was plenty of opportunity for tothers. Who could have predicted Mark Antony and Caesar would meet once again? These narratives and the success of Martia Dementia happened all thanks to our participants.
Social Media and Editorial Assistant Connor
Hart can't seem to find what it takes to predict the
winning bracket. Maybe next year!

This was the third and by far the most successful year of Martia Dementia. I would like to thank all the teachers, professors, friends, students, and anyone I may have left out for their participation. I would also like to take time to acknowledge and congratulate the following for their success in this year's competition. First, to Thomas Howard of St. Ignatius College Prep-Chicago, IL. Thomas correctly picked all but fifteen picks in this year's Martia Dementia, including finalist and second-place competitor Zeus! Congratulations, Thomas! Second, to Michael Niebling, a student at Brophy College Preparatory School in Phoenix, AZ. He also managed to get only fifteen picks wrong and correctly guessed the finalist, and winner, Caesar! Congratulations, Michael! Lastly, to Ian Lobo, also a student at Brophy College Prep. Ian not only managed to correctly pick both finalists and the winner of Martia Dementia but he also managed, somehow, to make only fifteen incorrect picks in the process. This was enough to secure him the first place in our contest. Congratulations, Ian!

Still disappointed in how your brackets turned out? Want to prepare for a better outing next year? Ian let us know what it took to make his bracket a winning one:
When the dust settled, this is how the Martia Dementia
2017 bracket looked like, with Caesar as the victor.

Well, I wouldn’t call my picks much of a strategy but more like educated guesses. My main way of choosing was who is more known by the people entering this contest, because I felt as if  people would choose who they knew the most, as well as if the person they chose was good or bad. For the ones I didn’t know of, like Hesiod, a quick Google search provided me with the answer. As whether my strategy changed, not really but I just asked friends to just pick Caesar because he needs to win!

Looking forward to next year’s Martia Dementia? Already counting down the days? Want to see an author, politician, philosopher, or deity who did not make it into this year’s bracket? Tweet @BCPublishers what and whom you would like to see and include the hash tag #MartiaDementia, or give feedback in the comments below. Did you have questions or comments about how this year’s competition went? Were you able to find ways to incorporate Martia Dementia into the classroom, or do you have ideas of how you might next year? Comment below—I would love to hear from you!

eBook Interactivity: Part Three

Types of Interactivity: Interactive Content

In part one of this series of blog posts I addressed how platform, device, and integration affect the eBook experience. In part two, I addressed the functionality that is internal to the platform. Today I will address interactive content that is publisher and author dependent. The main type of interactive content that can be added to books, especially books that are not being developed with interactivity in mind (i.e., books that have already been published), is embedded content. This includes things like embedded links to audio or video and hyperlinks.

Embedded Content

Audio
Links to audio are already an existing feature of many of our popular textbooks. For example eBooks for Latin for the New Millennium, Levels 1and 2, have audio links for every chapter reading. Our Caesar and Vergil titles also have audio links embedded. Adding these links is easy and depends only on the content being available to the publisher.
Video
Video links are tougher only because creating the content, at a high enough production level for publisher standards, is difficult. One option we are exploring here is to use videos created from images and slides.
Hyperlinks
Hyperlinks are exactly what they sound like—links to a page on the internet. The main problems here are the fact that links can break and that publishers cannot control changes to the content on outside webpages. One thing that you get from a book published by a known company is the assurance of peer review and editing. A link to a webpage removes this assurance. We are experimenting with some links to Wikipedia in a few books to see how they are received by teachers and students. We would love your feedback.

One thing many teachers ask for is interactive exercises. What they mean by this varies, but it mostly boils down to some way to track student interaction with homework or even to have that homework be self-grading. Is this possible? The short answer is, yes. Is this possible for your textbook, from your platform, with your (school’s) gradebook? The answer is, maybe. If you’d like to learn more about this, particularly as it pertains to Bolchazy-Carducci texts, please feel free to email me at bridget@bolchazy.com. I would be happy to discuss current options and future plans with you.
