Elementary Latin

This is an online course taught through the Edgenuity platform. Students begin their introduction to Latin with fundamental building blocks in four key areas of foreign language study: listening comprehension, speaking, reading, and writing. Each unit consists of a new vocabulary theme and grammar concept, numerous interactive games reinforcing vocabulary and grammar, reading and listening comprehension activities, speaking and writing activities, and cultural presentations covering significant aspects of Roman culture or their modern-day manifestations, and assessments. Students will engage in basic translation and identify English derivatives. Students will be given the opportunity to experience elements of Roman life through recipes, art projects, and simple science activities. This course will prepare students for the Level I National Latin Exam. This course has been aligned to the national standards as set forth by ACTFL (American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages).
