An Experiment in Teaching Latin: Preliminary Considerations.
Kratz, Dennis M.
A brief analysis of several theories of language acquisition and of various methods of language instruction leads to a proposal of general guidelines to be used in the development of an experimental course in Latin for seventh-grade students. The author discusses the writings of Chomsky, Sweet, and Brooks and suggests the abandonment of methodology which is strictly based on an audiolingual or grammar-translation theory in favor of a modified program geared primarily to individualized instruction.
