    Ok, so Portland is having a freaking heat wave!
    We are NEVER this hot in June. Great for the veggie garden but not so much for the kids, critters, hubby and me!

    BLECH

    I don't like heat. I tolerate it for the few weeks we get it, normally LATER in the Summer.
    And as I age, it gets to me quicker.

    How do we beat the heat?

    Stay inside, run the AC's, drink lots of water, catch up on some old movies, and make sure we are up earlier so we can do any outside work while it is cooler.
    Water the garden deeply and in the cool of the evening.
    Put out extra water and run the misters for the critters outside.
    And deal.....
    I am seriously considering installing an above ground pool for the evenings..... would be nice to take a cool swim.

    If you have heat where you are, how do you deal with it?

    “What works best?” Does that mean there’s one thing, one magic recipe that works all the time, with every learner, in every situation? Probably not. But some things, some approaches, some types of material do work best with this learner, or this group of learners, in these circumstances, at this time. That's what I've learned (or hope I've learned) in the 20-some years I've been working with Latin learners and their families and the 30-some years I've been learning the language myself.

    “What works best in this context?” That's a better question. As a young high-school teacher in 1992, I knew just enough to know that I didn’t have an answer. Then I started to find one. But as the world changed, and learners changed, and the context changed, I found, refined, and eventually discarded answer after answer as "this context" kept changing.

    What works best for learning Latin depends on a lot of factors … factors like
    • who you are, as the parent and teacher
    • who your child is, as a person and as a language learner
