In Latin 1, students begin acquiring reading skills in Latin as well as strengthening their English reading and vocabulary skills through vocabulary building and analyzing sentence structure. Through the reading selections and class discussions, students learn about the daily lives of the Romans and make comparisons relevant to today’s society. Students will use Latin orally to initiate and respond to simple statements and commands as well as read Latin aloud. Elementary writing tasks also build a bridge to understanding the written word.
Note: We will add a course each year, starting with Latin 1. Our plan is to add Latin 2 next year, culminating with AP Latin in future years.
