Description

Class Experience

Students will complete and master the concepts from the Oxford Latin I text. They will understand the basics of Latin grammar and learn the foundation of translating a Latin text, alongside the history, culture, and mythology of Ancient Rome.
I have an MA from Tufts University in Classical Studies, where I served as a teaching assistant for Intermediate Latin, Roman History, and Classical Mythology. My undergraduate degree was earned from the University of Iowa in Classical Languages and History, where I tutored students in Latin, mythology, and history. I went on to teach Latin and Roman history/culture to middle school aged to college level students and continue to privately tutor students in Latin at various levels. I have successfully prepared students for the AP and National Latin Exams.
Students will be assigned homework from the exercises in the Oxford text 3-4 times a week. These assignments are designed to take no more than half an hour.
Students should study at least half an hour for the quizzes. Although exams are take home and open book and note, I still highly encourage a twenty to thirty minute review before them.
Oxford Latin Course, Part I
Students will be assessed on homework preparation and participation (50% of final grade-25% for participation, up to 5 pts/day and 25% for homework, up to 5 pts/day), quizzes (25% of final grade) and exams (25% of final grade). Points for quizzes and exams will depend upon content. Quizzes will primarily consist of vocabulary and forms of the verbs, nouns, adjectives, and/or pronouns. Exams will focus on translation and grammar with occasional addition of forms.
4 hours per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
Ancient Rome was a culture of violence; however, the Oxford text does an excellent job of presenting Roman culture at an age-appropriate level, and I do not greatly expand on topics that pertain to excessive violence, murder, or suicide. These topics are handled with utmost care and are presented so that they are not all graphic in nature.
We will use the Oxford Latin Course, Part I.
