Requiescant in Pace.
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of two important classicists.
FLAVA Proposals Requested
Please consider presenting at the Foreign Language Association of Virginia Conference, Sept. 25-27, 2014, at the Williamsburg Doubletree Hotel in Kingsmill. There are various formats: 150 minute in-depth workshops on Thursday, 90-minute short workshops on Saturday afternoon, and 45-minute individual, group or panel discussions on Friday and Saturday mornings. They would like to have presentations on active/engaging/ innovative instructional strategies and also things related to technology, assessment, and supporting beginning teachers, but the category of “supporting student learning” covers a wide area. See for more information. The proposal deadline is April 18, 2014. Please send a quick email to Margaret Hicks () if you do plan to apply so she can be better able to plan for a full program of Latin sessions. COLLEGE PEOPLE are needed, too.
New Website Editor
The CAV website has a new editor: Charlaine Lunsford. Please send any additions, corrections or announcements to firstname.lastname@example.org. Make sure "CAV" is in the subject heading.
How nice it is to be thinking about a Saturday in May! By then, we will be past all of this wintry weather and looking forward to summer. Joined by our comrades who understand our mixture of fatigue, frustra tion, pride, and passion, we will celebrate our students, our colleagues, and our love for all things classical. In addition to these experiences, top-notch speakers and the opportunity to purchase classically related treasures through a silent auction will make the day special. Read more
