The Inventory of Greek Teaching in the Schools
can now be viewed at http://www-unix.oit.umass.edu/~glawall/greeksch.html.
The original survey can be viewed below.
Dear Fellow Greek Teacher:
I am preparing an inventory of Classical Greek programs in the
schools. I am intrigued by the number of Latin teachers who are
introducing Greek to their Latin students at some point in their
Latin sequence or are teaching Greek in non-traditional contexts,
such as before school, during lunch periods, after school, as
independent study, or as part of Latin Club activities.
* Does your school offer a regular course or courses in Classical
Greek? YES NO
If YES, please list the courses and levels offered,
indicate approximate enrollments in each course, and indicate the
textbook used in each course. Please use the reverse of this letter.
* Do you teach Greek in any non-traditional context, i.e., at
some point in your Latin sequence or before school, during lunch
periods, after school, as independent study, or as part of Latin
Club activities, etc.? YES NO
If YES, please briefly describe your teaching of Greek on
the reverse of this letter. I would like to facilitate a support
network among those teaching Greek in non-traditional contexts.
* Is there a need for a new Introduction to Greek book that would
meet the needs of such teachers better than existing textbooks,
which are constructed with traditional sequences of Greek
instruction in mind? YES NO
If YES, what might it contain? How much grammar? Stories?
Culture? Etymology? (Please jot down your ideas on the reverse of
this letter; would you like to help author such a book?)
* Is there a need for a National Greek Exam that would be the
equivalent of the Introduction to Latin Exam offered by the National
Latin Exam Committee? YES NO
