Latin 1 is an introduction to the Latin language. The focus will be on learning grammar principles in order to apply them to reading the language. Students will not only study the language, but also Roman cultural and historical contexts. Grammatical concepts covered include: pronunciation, word order, nouns, verbs, adjectives, and pronouns. Students will be required to memorize grammar and vocabulary, and they will also strengthen English vocabulary as they study Latin roots of English words.
Expectations: Students of any language should expect to devote an hour to homework daily to gain mastery of the language. As with any subject, some students will complete homework more quickly.
Teacher: Barbara Hand
Good command of English language (grammar, vocabulary, usage) at grade level or above.
Decision pending until mid-June, 2013.
