However, another idea struck me after
What if my Latin class made title cards in Latin throughout a section of the film? Inventing dialogue, searching for vocabulary, and using proper grammar all lead to active engagement in the target language with some giggling in the process. Students can also incorporate a specific grammar item such as the passive periphrastic:
"Judah, the turning post must be avoided by you!"
"A longer tunic ought to be worn by that charioteer!"
"That lady with a peacock on her head has to be tossed out!"
And did you know that the pod racing scene in the Star Wars: The Phantom Menace was influenced by the chariot scene in Ben Hur?
