Colloquamur Latine cum Pueris Puellesque: Latin in the Middle School.
Graber, Charles F.; Norton, Harriet S.
Guidelines for the development of a Latin curriculum for the middle school, with specific suggestions as to content and methodology, are presented in this manual. The material, oriented toward new approaches in the teaching of the Latin and Graeco-Roman cultures, strives to develop proficiency in the skills of listening, speaking, reading, and writing in the target language. Discussion of the rationale of the course, nature of the pupils, objectives, and program precedes selected instructional units. These units include: (1) the accusative case, (2) the accusative case of certain prepositions, (3) oral and written reinforcement of the accusative case as direct object and object of certain prepositions, (4) Mythology--reading of "Midas et Contactus Aureus", (5) singular and plural of the imperative, and (6) review of cultural items. Pen and ink sketches are used throughout, and a bibliography is contained in the guide. (RL)
