Latin I

Latin I

6th-9th grade

This class is designed for students who have taken Intro to Latin or have some experience with the

Latin language.  If your child is younger than 6th grade and you have take an Intro. to Latin class, then you may request placement if Latin I with teacher approval.

Salvete omnes!  Explore the language and culture of ancient Rome!  The class will start with a review of the basic grammar concepts (the first half of Cambridge Latin Course Unit 1), and will cover the second half of Unit 1 to complete the equivalent of Latin I.    Students will expand their knowledge of Latin vocabulary and grammar in the context of the Roman Empire, from gladiators to the fateful eruption of Mt. Vesuvius.  Every chapter will include an interactive activity to further explore the Roman world!
