In this 16-week course, beginners in Latin will learn grammar, vocabulary, sentence structure, and gain translation and conversational skills, as well as learn about ancient Roman culture.

Class experience

  • Students will learn ancient Roman culture and the Latin language. More specifically, in learning Latin, they will improve their grasp of English grammar, and their critical thinking skills. Beginning Latin provides the basics in order to progress to Latin levels 2-4, and then onto reading and translating for sight reading. We will learn and practice all the skills needed for this.
I have a BA and MA in Latin, German, and History. I have extensive experience teaching languages and world cultures. I also spent time in Italy researching and translating texts. I have taught Latin to a variety of age groups, from middle schoolers to university students. 
Homework Offered
Homework includes study, writing vocabulary and noun/adjective/verb charts, and take home quizzes. I will supply all of the necessary texts, PDFs, and slides after the class is completed for the week. I can adapt to your format (Apple, Microsoft Office, or Google Drive links) according to your preference.
2 - 4 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
There will be several take home quizzes, and one final test. Throughout the entire course I will send several assessments on students' progress.
Grades Offered
Students will need to supply a dedicated notebook in order to write vocabulary and verb/noun/endings charts. 
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Given that Latin was used in a historical setting of empire and conquering territories, there will be mention of military, slavery, polytheistic and the upswing of monotheistic religions, and the ever-present class system. All of these will be discussed through a historical lens, and all sides in any event will be thoroughly discussed without bias. 
As I mentioned, the curriculum is something I have used for previous classes, but instead of one text, I draw from several: Wheelock's 7th edition textbook, Cambridge Latin 1, Minimus 1, Beginner's Latin, and Getting Started with Latin. I also provide my own take based on what has worked for my students in past classrooms.
