Primary Text:

Henle Latin I-Year 1, Henle Grammar, Memoria Press student guides to units 1-5, and Pontius Pilate, by Paul L.  Meier.

This course is designed for both the beginning Latin high school student, or a middle-student with prior Latin experience who wants the challenge of a high-school level Latin course. In our first year of Latin study, the student will amass about 250 Latin vocabulary words and phrases, many more English derivatives, grammar forms, and will begin translating Latin. In the process, he or she will increase their understanding of English, the history of Western civilization, as well as the culture that dominated the Israelites at the time of Christ and the first century Church! Games, activities, puzzles, translation of Bible verses, plus the reading and discussion of an engaging novel set in first century Rome will provide your student with a rich and exciting first experience of high school Latin.  Students will have daily written homework assignments to complete, which will be turned in on class days.

 

Outside Homework:

Students should plan on 4-6 hours weekly on homework.
