Developing a Latin Curriculum for High School.
Corn, Alan M.
A guide for teachers developing a high school Latin curriculum provides a rationale, structure, and method for course planning at four difficulty levels. The approach is based on seven subject matter goals and specific instructional objectives for each, which are appended. The goals are: to help students (1) understand simple Latin syntax; (2) develop vocabulary skills; (3) develop the ability to read and understand a simple passage in Latin; (4) demonstrate an awareness of how Latin has influenced English; (5) understand the institutions, culture, and religion of Roman society; (6) understand the Roman cultural influence on present-day America; and (7) develop the ability to pronounce the sounds of classical Latin. The classroom implications of these goals are expanded on for each level of a four-year course sequence. (MSE)
