This class is interactive and students will have the opportunity to read and translate aloud in class. Those who choose to participate in this way will receive immediate feedback and guidance with their Latin work. *Students will have an optional BLT (Big Latin Test). at the end of this course. Upon request, I am happy to provide grades for this as well

The number “six” in Latin is “sex” (as in sextuplets or a sextet). Some students may chuckle at this. In the past I’ve simply encouraged students to get their giggles out the first time they see it, and then get over it, it’s just the number six. In eleven years I’ve had no real issues with this word/method. 

The family in the textbook keeps slaves, and they are prominent characters in the story. This was a part of Roman culture historically, and I include a brief discussion of what slavery was like in the Roman world, especially as it contrasts to more modern pre- Civil War slavery in America.

The way the textbook teaches direct object accusative is with a fistfight among the children in the story. The title of the chapter is "the bad boy" so there's no defending his behavior, and I always make mention of how he could really use some sit-down-with-an-adult-and-talk-it-out sort of help to manage his stress rather than hitting a little girl for singing. At the end of the chapter, the girl who gets hit is sad because her brother, the one who hit her, is being punished and is hurting. I always emphasize that as a heartwarming story of compassion - even though he just hurt her for no good reason at all, she sees her brother crying and is sad for him. To me, that is beautiful and the sort of kindheartedness the world could use more of!
