How the Romans Lived and Spoke (Romani Viventes et Dicentes): A Humanistic Approach to Latin for Children in the Fifth Grade. Teachers' Guide.
Masciantonio, Rudolf; And Others
This curriculum guide, developed for use in a FLES (foreign language in elementary school) pilot project, embraces an audiolingual approach to the teaching of Latin while providing a source of materials for the teaching of the culture of ancient Rome. The course is organized around nine major units, subdivided into "Lectiones", each requiring 20 minutes for class presentation. The units include: (1) an introduction to Latin and the Romans; (2) the Roman family; (3) the Roman family at table; (4) how the Roman family dresses; (5) the house of the Roman family; (6) toys, pets, and games of Roman children; (7) education of Roman children; (8) entertainment for the Roman family; and (9) occupations and duties of Roman parents. Specific objectives and activities are detailed in each lesson. The guide is written with a view toward using Sweet's "Artes Latinae," the Encyclopedia Britannica Latin materials, or Oerberg's "Lingua Latina Secundum Naturae Rationem Explicata" in grade 7. (RL)
