Summer FREE Webinar - eyeVocab

Join us for a FREE webinar - eyeVocab: A Revolutionary Approach to Vocabulary Acquisition & Retention.

This webinar is scheduled for Tuesday, June 10, 2014 6:00–7:00 PM EST (5:00-6:00 Central Time) presented by high school teacher, Thaddeus Lisowski.

Frustrated that your students so frequently forget the vocabulary they need to know and supposedly "learned"?

This webinar will present the documented success of eyeVocab, an innovative second-language acquisition software program, in stimulating Latin vocabulary learning and retention. Master teacher Thaddeus Lisowski will share his enthusiasm using eyeVocab with his own Latin classes.

eyeVocab maximizes state-of-the-art technology and revolutionizes second language vocabulary acquisition. Far more than an electronic flashcard, eyeVocab uses "distinctive affective images in isolation" in combination with audio recitation and keyboard input so that students hardwire the new vocabulary in their memory. Classes using eyeVocab, designed for the language lab as well as for individual use at home, experience dramatically significant improvement in vocabulary retention.

Thaddeus Lisowski received his AB from Harvard University in Classics and his PhD from U.C. Berkeley in Comparative Literature (emphasis in Ancient Greek and Latin). While at Berkeley, Thaddeus taught English Composition and Literature courses and Latin and Greek language courses (including intensive summer workshops in both languages). He taught four years at Maybeck High School in the English and Math departments, including AP English and AP Calculus, where he also was co-leader of a student trip to Machu Picchu over the Inca Trail. Since 2007, Thaddeus has taught Latin in the upper school at the Head-Royce School in Oakland, CA. During off hours, Thaddeus enjoys biking with his two young daughters and hiking in the East Bay hills or in more far-flung places.
