Latin Simon's Cat Videos
In 2015 I experimented with adding Latin subtitles to short Simon's Cat cartoons to use for a movie talk. Of course, a movie talk is probably better if you don't have any text and students need to just listen to you and watch. I've recently added them to a new YouTube channel (since I can't access my old school one!). And don't ask me what program I used to add captions; I honestly don't remember!
I will be going through files and searching links for articles that I have written. I will also start reposting some articles from my old blog to my new blog located on this site.
