Teacher's Guide to Accompany the Cambridge Latin Course. Tentative Edition.
This guide is designed to assist teachers using the "Cambridge Latin Course," a multimedia instructional system developed in the United Kingdom which can be adapted to the needs of pupils of varying backgrounds, ages, and abilities. The Guide focuses on Unit I, the first level of the Cambridge materials. The materials are especially suited to beginning learners of Latin in grades 7 and 8, but they may also be used with beginners in grades 9-12. The general approach to each stage in Unit I is as follows; (1) aural-oral presentation, using model sentences with visual cues and tape recording: (2) reading and writing, which involve reading aloud and little use of translation; (3) presentation of English derivatives and cognates, involving word games; (4) additional reading and writing, again with the use of visual cues and audio tape; (5) presentation of material on culture with the use of a variety of audiovisual aids, quizzes and written games; and (6) evaluation of pupil progress at the end of each stage. The major portion of the guide consists of curriculum and teaching suggestions for each stage in Unit I, specifically Latin questions, activities, derivatives and cognates, and word games. Two appendices conclude the guide: a bibliography for teacher reference and a summary of recent research on the value of Latin in upgrading the basic skills of ppils. A form for evaluating the guide is also included. (SCC)
