Latin for Secondary Schools.
Glaude, Paul M.; And Others
This updated Latin syllabus provides a framework for imparting an understanding of the Ancient World, more particularly of Roman civilization with its Grecian overtones, primarily through the development of reading skills. A chronological-historical approach has been chosen for the course of study from level 1 through level 5 courses of instruction. Thematically, the literature selected reflects the evolution of Rome from an unknown, insignificant farm village into a teeming metropolis and prestigious world power. The syllabus correlates introductory remarks, content and reading selections, topical references, morphology and syntax, basic sentence patterns, and teacher's notes. A guide for Latin in grades 7 and 8 and a "Latin Heritage Course" are included. Suggestions for the teacher concerning teaching methods, word study, vocabulary, audiovisual materials, language laboratory, programed learning, and selected reading materials conclude the major section of the syllabus. A bibliography and a sample unit for level 1 on Roman education are provided. (RL)
