Description

Class Experience

I am a certified educator with 2 bachelor's degrees, one in English and one in Classical Studies. I also hold a master's degree in Latin. I have been teaching Latin and Ancient Roman culture for 20 years in high school and online, grades 9-12, level 1 through 4 AP. I have also been coaching a Latin Club academic competition team to 1st place in regionals and top 3 in our state consistently for the past 20 years as well.
As solid language acquisition requires practice, students may be assigned reading or composition activities to complete outside of class to be reviewed the next session. They may take anywhere from 1 to 2 hours per week. They are also STRONGLY encouraged to spend a few minutes every day reviewing the previously learned material, 5 to 10 minutes daily. They are building habits and "muscles" that will make their work with the language much easier.
Students will need to purchase a digital account for the textbook and course from the link below. Once you're on this page, scroll to the bottom to find the digital account option, which is $20/year. This account is good for books 1 and 2, which will take about a year to progress through. Of course this does NOT mean you are obligated to sign up for my next courses but, if you do, this digital textbook will be able to follow you. https://hands-up-education.org/suburani-indi-na.html
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
I use google slide presentations and shared google docs as learning and practice tools. I also use kahoot for low stakes competition quiz games to reinforce learning.
Lessons will be based on the Suburani text from Hands Up Educational Resources. It is a pioneering textbook that features a broader variety of characters, which more accurately reflects the diversity of the Roman world. It is historically and linguistically sound and one of the most engaging textbooks I've encountered. Students will not be required to purchase it.
