Standards of Learning. Latin, Levels I-IV. Goals, Objectives and Descriptive Statements.
Virginia State Dept. of Education, Richmond.
Virginia's learning objectives for Latin in the public schools, part of a larger program of learning objectives for all basic subjects and all levels of elementary and secondary education, are presented. The objectives provide a scope and sequence for planning curriculum and instruction, and are both general enough for communicating state standards and specific enough to guide local curriculum development. They are designed to develop concepts, skills, and positive attitudes for four goals: (1) student manipulation of basic language components of vocabulary (including derivatives) and the elements of grammar with an understanding of their relationship to language processes; (2) understanding of language processes, including syntax, analysis, interpretation, and synthesis; (3) increasing abilities in comprehension and perception of method and meaning in literature; and (4) understanding and appreciation of Roman culture and its impact on western civilization. These four areas are treated as interrelated and interdependent. Objectives are outlined for grammatical, literary, and cultural focuses at each of four difficulty levels. (MSE)
