COURSE OVERVIEW

36 week course plan:  Latina Christiana I.

COURSE NOTES

One 30 to 40 minute instructional day weekly, and about 20 minutes of daily drill.

From the teacher manual:  “Latina Christiana is designed for parent, teachers and students who have no background in Latin or foreign languages.  It can be used as a self-instruction course for older students or as a teacher directed course for elementary students…the teacher can learn Latin along with the students…The thirty lessons are designed to be covered in one year, but younger students may require considerably more time and older ones considerably less.”   [Nevertheless, STAA recommends a quick study of “Prima Latina” before starting this text, *especially* if the family has no experience with Latin or foreign languages, or struggles at all with English grammar.]

We use this program to introduce Latin, begin building the intellectual organization Latin study produces, and strengthen English grammar and collegiate vocabulary skills.  Their stated goals for the course are to 1) pronounce, spell and translate approximately 200 Latin words, 2) learn 25 practical Latin expressions and 2 prayers and 3 songs, 3) define noun, verb and adjective; understand concepts of tense, number, gender, and 1st, 2nd and 3rd person; conjugate 1st and 2nd conjugation verbs in the present, imperfect, and future tenses; decline 1st and 2nd declension nouns and adjectives; give the singular and plural forms of 1st and 2nd declension nouns (nominative case); complete Latin sentences so that the subject and verb agree in number and person; make adjectives and nouns agree in number and gender; recite and spell the five cases of Latin nouns, 4) understand the concept of English words that are derived from Latin, and be exposed to many English words of Latin origin and complete sentences using these derivatives, 5)and includes a history section keyed to Famous Men of Rome which we recommend you skip since we study Roman history in the STAA program elsewhere (though we do recommend looting from it mercilessly for our Roman history study cycle when the time comes).

For Week 1 of the year, Mom, use the class periods to read through the teacher guide information.  For Week 2 of the year, read through the informational material from the teacher manual with your students and prepare for the year’s teaching, together.  Week 3 of the year begin working the five-lesson unit, one lesson per week, as per the book’s suggested course plan on Page 8, omitting the history exercises.  Use the week following the fifth lesson in each unit to review and test.  Then start the next five-lesson unit, and so on.

For quarterly reporting, enter the beginning and ending lessons you covered for the quarter.  For a work sample, copy the latest lesson or test and mail it to us.
