TEACHING FIRST-YEAR WRITING THROUGH CLASSICS
First-year writing courses can be a challenge for both instructors and students. This paper describes a first-year writing course developed, taught and continuously refined by one classicist. The course combines writing instruction with primary and secondary material relating to the ancient world. Students who might otherwise never take a classics course can thus engage with ancient Greece and Rome. Such a course can extend Classics into other areas of the college curriculum and expand the number of students who learn about antiquity.
