Summer Latin Institute - Day 1 minus 4

So just to clarify, Day 1 minus 4 was Thursday, June 7.

Another good day of presessing. Some mock-teaching, some mock-lecturing, some actual discussion with program administrator (and text book co-author) Rita Fleischer about registration procedures come Monday, June 11. I'll be registering students in the Summer Greek Institute whose last names begin with N through Z.

In the evening, the Latin faculty had dinner at a Japanese buffet in Koreatown (the Korean neighborhood bordered by 31st Street, 36th Street, Fifth Avenue, and Sixth Avenue—hugging the CUNY Graduate Center to the north, south, and west).

I woke up this morning thinking, "How am I going to get students to translate 'Nēmō est tam senex' as 'There is no man so old' rather than 'No so old man exists'?" At least I was awake. In the past few weeks, morning drills have not infrequently found their way into my very dreams.

More soon...
