Latin 1 (Class 2): The Latin Puzzle Key: Cases and Declensions

Angela Kennedy, B.A., M.A.
Average rating:5.0Number of reviews:(79)
In this one-time course, students will continue learning 1st/2nd verb conjugations, basic greetings and Latin sentence structure from Class 1, as well as the Latin cases.

Class experience

Students are introduced to Latin cases for nouns and adjectives, and begin putting Latin sentence structure to practice. We will also practice our greetings, and review the material from Class 1. 
I have a BA and MA in Latin and History. I have tutored and taught Latin from middle school through university levels. I also spent time doing research in Italy and translating texts. 
Homework Offered
Homework is to write the vocabulary into charts for each case, as well as translate the given sentences.
1 - 2 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
Informal assessment for the previous class during the review section of this class.
Grades Offered
I will provide copies for each student of the vocabulary and sentences for homework, as well as a copy of the slide show. Students need to supply a dedicated notebook for transcribing their vocabulary charts and translations. They may also choose to purchase an inexpensive Latin dictionary (~$ 3 for used ~$18 for new on Amazon for the Pocket Oxford Latin dictionary) OR use the free web source - Latin Wiktionary. 
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
The two Latin authors' excerpts I am using, Horace and Catullus, have been thoroughly vetted and are appropriate for this age range. Both authors have written adult themes in other works, as is common for ancient authors, but these are extremely tame.
I have created this curriculum based on my own Latin studies, and draw from Wheelock's 7th edition Latin text book, Cambridge Latin I, Minimus 1, and the Oxford Latin dictionary. I also suggest downloading a free Latin dictionary (or you can buy one if you so choose - they range from very inexpensive to hundred of dollars - I do no suggest buying an expensive Latin dictionary at this point. I only bought mine while in college) OR utilizing Latin wiktionary (a free web resource) and I offer the URL during class. Latin Wiktionary is phenomenal. It not only suggests a few of the definitions, but students can see all the conjugation/declension endings for each verb tense/mood/person and gender/person.

I teach world history/cultures and the languages associated with them. My teaching experience (2005 - present) is varied, as are the ages I have taught.  I've taught pre-school children phonics and grammar. I've taught middle-schoolers history,...
