Learn to Read Stories in Latin, Stage 1 Students who wish to learn to read Latin should take this course. Students who do not wish to learn Latin should take some other course. The Cambridge Latin Course is designed so that students will learn to read Latin and learn about daily life in the first century CE, so they will understand the background of the stories. I am not employed by, nor do I represent the publisher of this book, but I do think it is suitable for learning Latin...
This class is taught in English.
Students will learn Latin pronunciation and simple sentences with some basic vocabulary.
I have a BA in Latin and am a certified Latin teacher in Texas. I have taught Latin and other subjects for about twelve years.
The students should read the cultural sections for the stage (pp. 8-13) before or after the class.
TEXTBOOK: Cambridge Latin Course Unit 1 fifth edition (ISBN 978-1-107-69063-9) 3x5 index cards for vocabulary study Composition book or braded folder with loose leaf notebook paper for taking notes and jotting down questions
I will use informal assessments, based mainly on class participation. I may however create a Kahoot.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
This course is based on the fifth edition of a textbook. The writers of the book used archaeological evidence, and ancient documents and literary works to write the stories. There are many photos and illustrations, some of which may be upsetting to some people, but the book was adopted by many state school authorities.
The students will need a textbook to participate in this class. Please make sure it is the correct edition.
