The Place of Latin in the Curriculum.
Lashbrook, Austin M.
The diminishing status of Latin in the curriculum underscores the author's plea to Latin teachers to strive toward the implementation of nine suggestions concerning: (1) improved teaching, (2) professional cooperation, (3) institutes and workshops, (4) organizational support, (5) the Junior Classical League, (6) experiments and projects, (7) curriculum planning, (8) teacher shortage, and (9) professional attitudes. Three major reasons for including Latin in the curriculum are related to making the study relevant to the current epoch. Five forces which have worked against the growth of Latin and a rejection of the typical justification for study are presented. (RL)
