Masciantonio, Rudolph; And Others
The purpose of this guide is to assist Latin and English teachers who have some background in Latin to expand the English vocabulary and reading skills of pupils through the study of Latin roots, prefixes, and suffixes. The lessons are designed also to familiarize pupils with aspects of classical culture, specifically sports and games, and to introduce orally some basic Latin. The introductory material provides general notes on the teaching of Latin in the Philadelphia School District, suggestions for scheduling, and staffing the Latin classes, an outline of the organization of each lesson, some general hints to the teacher, and an overview of the material to be taught in this unit. The guide itself contains 23 lessons for oral presentation. Each lesson plan details the objectives and class activities. The second part of the guide consists of a set of pen-and-ink drawings suitable for mounting. (AMH)
