New book out: ‘Classics at primary school: a tool for social justice’

In December 2022, my first book came out, on approaches to teaching Latin and ancient Greek at primary school. The book is available for purchase internationally via online book stores.

A first review was very positive: ‘Classics at Primary School is an engaging and practical guide to promoting social justice through classics. Evelien Bracke provides an exemplar of teacher self-reflection, makes a convincing case that classics can and should be employed as a tool for social equity, and explicates a justice-oriented and culturally responsive approach to pedagogy that is firmly grounded in educational research and theory. Classics at Primary School has something to offer all stakeholders in education, and it would make a particularly impactful addition to any pre-service teacher’s reading list.’

The book was also mentioned recently by the Greek Elliniki Agogi project.
