Class Description

Latin 1 (Prima Latina)

Prima Latina Student Workbook from Memoria Press, 2nd Edition, ISBN # 9781930953512

This class covers Beginning Latin for upper elementary students. We will also be learning about the culture and geography of the Ancient Roman Empire. I will also be using the book Roots of English from Memoria Press to reinforce and teach roots, prefixes and suffixes as well as English derivatives.

As we begin the study of Latin, we well review basic English grammar which is key to the mastery of the Latin language. We will build upon this and lay a strong foundation. The curriculum is simplified and is student friendly. It will give students the necessary structure for mastery of the basic skills for further language studies. The curriculum, coupled with Roman culture studies (taken from the National Latin Exam study materials), will further enhance the student's learning of basic Latin.

The course will consist of:

Latin language lessons, each including grammar lessons appropriate for beginning Latin, and vocabulary words with corresponding English derivatives and practical Latin phrases.

Map studies of Ancient Rome, as overview of Roman culture including the clothing, food, social practices and housing of the times. We will also look at the Geography of the area during ancient times. We will discuss ancient Roman historical figures.

The weekly class will consist of Lesson/concept presentation, review, homework review, quizzes, take home tests and class participation. We will play games to reinforce vocabulary and other information learned in class.

No students below 4th grade.
