Students will begin their journey learning the Latin language and the culture, literature, and history of the Classical world. Please see the detailed course outline in "Class Experience" for the topics that will be covered.
I love Latin and really anything that relates to the Greco-Roman world. I have an M.A. in Classics that emphasized pedagogy. I also have years of experience teaching Latin to a range of ages and skills levels online and in a traditional classroom. But, no matter who the student is I believe that learning should be a fun and engaging journey!
There will be homework. All homework will be available in the Google Classroom. Homework will consist of reading the textbook, memorization of noun and verb endings and vocabulary, and an end of course project.
The REQUIRED material for this course is the student edition of the textbook "Cambridge Latin Course Unit 1, 5th edition". It is about $29 New on Amazon. Used is OK. But, it needs to be the 5th edition. The individual chapters are available for purchase on iTunes as well. Please make sure you are buying the correct edition!
Written feedback on homework assignments will be given throughout this course and on the final project. If you want an overall letter grade for the course, it must be requested.
No live meetings, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
This course uses Gimkit, Edpuzzle, Nearpod, and Google drive, docs, forms, and Jamboard which do not require a a login. Magistrula and Flipgrid require a log-in to help me as the teacher track student progress.
