In this 16-week course, students will continue their journey through the ancient world, learning basic Latin grammar, increasing their ability to sight read, reading classical writers and poets, and delving into their own Latin writing.

Class experience

Students will become more adept in recognizing how to read and create Latin syntax. They will also become familiar with several Latin authors, poets, and satirists. They will learn how to research and find obscure and archaic Latin terms. They will have fun doing all of this!
I have a bachelors and masters degree in foreign language and history. I have taught and/or tutored this class at various levels and for various ages (middle school to university). I have traveled to and researched in the places I teach about, and I often include realia and cultural information to make the language come alive for the student. Nothing pleases me more than seeing students fall in love with the Latin language! 
Homework Offered
Homework is for YOUR benefit. Study the vocabulary. Make your noun/adjective/verb charts. Practice the readings and translations. There is homework for each lesson. I provide all the materials you need to work in your dedicated Latin notebook at the end of each class.* For every hour of Latin class, you should be studying for - at the very least - two hours (I suggest a little more, but I proudly confess that I am a big old Latin nerd). * Let me know if you prefer to receive your handouts and slides in Microsoft Word/PowerPoint, Apple Keynotes and Pages, or via Google Drive links (docs/slides).
2 - 4 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
I send an informal assessment at the end of each class. For the classes where there is a take home quiz, or the final exam, I give a detailed assessment of the student's progress to the family.
Grades Offered
Students need a dedicated Latin notebook (or digital file, if they prefer creating their notebook on their device) for making and studying their vocabulary and noun, adjective, and verb charts. This tool is key to learning and remembering word endings and the meanings of the root words, as well as translating. 

After class, I will send via Outschool message a copy of the slide show as well as a vocabulary list and translation practice. I can send it in either Office format (docx or pptx), Apple format (keynote/pages), or as Google links (docs/slides). Let me know your preference. 
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
I edit all external media so that it is age appropriate. As you know, museum pieces, such as statues and paintings, often display the subject's physique au naturel, or partially so. I exclude those for this age group. I make certain all Latin translations are free from profanity and mature or adult themes. However, the Romans were a violent and militaristic people. There is talk of betrayal, wars, conquering, servants and a general violent bent to some passages and history discussed. I treat this with an unbiased historical lens and make certain to pay attention to my students' sensibilities. If we need to curtail a topic or move on, we do. Any YouTube video is strictly informational and education and has no age rating, nor is any external account necessary for the student.
I draw from Wheelock 7th edition text, A Latin Grammar, 38 Latin Stories Designed to Accompany Wheelock, Cambridge Book 1 & 2, Oxford Course 1, Minimus Book 1 & 2, Latin for Beginners, (among others) and my own studies. We use Latin Wiktionary as a free online source (dictionary). We use a YouTube video (edited for age appropriateness) for our virtual field trip to the Capitoline Museum in Rome and it has no rating as it is for educational purposes. No external account is necessary for the student.

Profile
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,...
