Class experience

I fell in love with classics as an undergraduate. During high school, I had taken a few Latin courses, and I had a genuine interest in the language (as a child, I had even attempted to teach myself Latin from a book, which didn't go so well, but clearly I had an attraction to Latin from an early age!), but it wasn't something I imagined myself pursuing in any serious way in higher education. In the first semester of my freshman year at college, however, due to a mix up with my schedule, I ended up in a Roman history course, and it transformed my world. I was entranced by both the subject matter and the teacher, and when the second semester came around, I made sure to sign up for as many classics courses as I could take. By sophomore year, I was learning ancient Greek and declaring my major in classics. I received my BA in Latin Language and Literature (with an undeclared minor in ancient Greek) from Oberlin College. 

During my senior year of college, I made the decision to apply to graduate school. By that time, I had decided that I wanted to share my excitement for the classical world by becoming a teacher, and given my passion for classics, I preferred to deepen my knowledge of the subject rather than to attend a master's of education program. I received a merit-based classics fellowship from the University of Virginia, from which I received my MA in Classics. 

I have been a Latin language tutor for my entire adult life, I have taught Latin language and literature courses on the college level, and as a teacher at a private school in Virginia, I taught Latin language courses (intro Latin all the way through AP Latin) for middle schoolers and upper schoolers; because the school gave teachers control over course curriculum, I structured my classes so that mythology, Roman history, and classical civilization played an integral role.
Homework Offered
Successful language learning requires student effort outside of class. Students may be assigned textbook reading, composition exercises, or other activities in between class meetings. Students are also strongly encouraged to "touch" the material every day, even for short (5-10 minute) periods; the teacher is happy to provide suggestions as to what activities might be helpful, but students are also encouraged to explore what works for them. Formal homework assignments could range from an hour to two hours outside of class each week, with "touch" activities left to the students' discretion. Occasionally, students may be asked to complete an online activity at Quia.com; such activities are designed to help students to think about the fundamentals of the language in a different way than a textbook can provide.
1 - 2 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
I strive to provide individualized feedback to parents on a weekly or bi-weekly basis. I assess learners largely based on their performance in class; I am less concerned with what a learner can do on a formalized assessment than I am with how they show up to class. If a learner is engaged and demonstrates to me that he/she is understanding the material, to me, that is a success. My priority is for learners to feel that we are a team--I may be imparting new information and helping learners to process and assimilate it, but the learner is invited to take ownership of his/her experience by asking questions, participating in class exercises, and completing the assigned homework. A learner's performance during class exercises and discussion, as well as his/her performance on the homework assignments, tends to say a lot about a learner's understanding and progress, and learners receive personalized feedback around this. If a learner does wish to have a more formalized assessment (take tests or quizzes, have assignments that are submitted for a letter or percentage grade), that can be arranged by request--I am happy to accommodate different learning styles and preferences.
Grades Offered
We will be using Cambridge Latin Course, Unit 1 (5th edition), for a portion of most classes. Students can purchase a new or used copy via Amazon here: https://www.amazon.com/North-American-Cambridge-Course-Students/dp/1107690633/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=cambridge+latin+book+1&qid=1602555639&sr=8-1.

There is also a digital version of the textbook available from iBooks. The digital version can be purchased in stages, for around $1 USD a stage; we will use the first three stages in this course (this would be a more cost-effective option in the short run, but if students wish to continue their Latin studies, purchasing a physical copy of the textbook would probably be a better option unless students have a strong preference for digital content). We will not be using any of the interactive elements of the digital textbook in class. The link to the iBook page is here: https://books.apple.com/us/book/cambridge-latin-course-5th-ed-unit-1-stage-1/id1410753501?ls=1#see-all/other-books-in-book-series

Please note that if students decide to enroll in further Latin classes, we will continue to use this textbook. Students will need to have their textbook by the second week of class.

Having a pen/pencil and paper at hand for each class is a good practice.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
