I'm a homeschooling mother of four with a PhD in Classics from Columbia University. After teaching at the college level, I started teaching Latin to kids ages 6-18 in our homeschool coops. I love the creativity of sharing a 'dead' language in very lively ways, through conversation, reading stories, games, and song. Learning Latin does lead to success in so many ways. Latin is the at the root of a large chunk of our words in English, it is the source of all the Romance languages, and, with Greek, Latin gives the building blocks of scientific, philosophical, legal, and theological vocabulary. Latin grammar helps students understand English grammar. Good news: it does not have to involve brute memorization and thick textbooks.
For this fourth series of classes, all materials will be provided, though students may buy or borrow from the library the two texts we will be using: Lingua Latina by Hans Orberg D'Aulaires' Book of Greek Mythology [Why not Roman? It is good to know both Greek and Roman names for the gods; this book gives the best known stories for Greek and Roman gods; and finally, it is just so darn good.] Other materials, such as vocabulary lists and audio files, will be supplied by me as needed week by week.
1 hour 15 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
