Class Experience

See the course description in the above section for specifics. The aim is to teach students practice rudiments of Latin that also enrich their ability to use English.
Latin teacher for 30 years in a U.S. Public School.
Students will be working individually, not in groups.  The homework will be 10-15 minutes of work to be done after each class.
Recommended optional purchase of the Latin workbook, Latin is Fun, Book 1 (author John Traupman) - used copy $17-$20 through abebooks.com. Also, a basic paperback Latin dictionary will be useful. What is definitely necessary is a notebook for note-taking and for review and studying purposes.
At the end of each lesson there will be a short assessment activity to gauge the student's retention of the material covered in the class.
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Lessons will be inspired by material drawn from Latin is Fun, Book 1.  This is a program I have used with great success for thirty years in my public school classes for students in Grades 7-10.
