Augmenting Reading Skills through Language Learning Transfer.
Indianapolis Public Schools, IN.
This document is the syllabus of a Latin course developed by the Indianapolis Public Schools for elementary school children, based on the Latin FLES materials of the Philadelphia Public Schools. The program is based on the theory that the study of a second language will increase the student's understanding and control of his native tongue. The general objectives of the program are to assess whether the study of Latin and classical civilization will expand the verbal functioning of sixth grade children in English, broaden their cultural horizons through a contrastive study of the past, and stimulate an interest in humanities through this innovative approach. This packet of materials contains daily lesson plans, each developed for a thirty minute class, corresponding to each individual unit. Most lesson plans begin with some form of Latin and oral drill, progress to the introduction of the English target words, and follow with concentrated drill of these words. Lessons are often concluded with a short game or a passive exercise. (Author/CFM)
