Limited Capacity seats available

A fandom is (according to urban dictionary) a "community that surrounds a tv show/movie/book etc." You have probably even noticed your students openly declaring their membership to such fandoms as Dr. Who, Sherlock Holmes, and Harry Potter. This session is designed to share a number of tested lesson plans that tap into this enthusiasm using fantasy tropes and characters to improve Latin acquisition. The presenter will show how to set up situations where students create and encounter comprehensible input through these fandoms.
