COURSE OVERVIEW

Wheelock’s Latin Year 1 (of 3); 36 week course plan.  Uses Wheelock’s Latin, Workbook to Wheelock’s Latin, and Comprehensive Guide to Wheelock’s Latin.

COURSE NOTES

.  Year I of a three year course
.  10.0 high school credits for this completed course plan
.  Auditory drills, teacher helps and learning aids are found at www.wheelockslatin.com
 
 
 This is Year I of a three year course.  (Upon completion of the three years, your student will have the equivalent of one year of college Latin.)  10.0 high school credits are awarded for this completed course plan.  The class takes about 45 minutes four or five times weekly, including oral drill.  Auditory pronunciations and drills, teacher helps and learning aids can be found at www.wheelockslatin.com .
 
 First, the lesson is read in Wheelock’ s Latin , drill cards are made to be studied and listened to daily at www.wheelockslatin.com , and the translations at the end of the chapter are done in rough draft form.  Mom, grade these for completeness, not close accuracy--yet.  Next, the corresponding chapter is worked in A Comprehensive Guide to Wheelock’ s Latin,  a chatty explanation and enrichment of the lesson.  Then the Wheelock’ s  lesson is read again, more carefully this time, and the corresponding chapter is worked in Workbook for Wheelock’ s Latin.   Then, the “Optional Self-Tutorial Exercises” are done from the back of Wheelock's; note that the answer key for these exercises directly follow them in pp. 396-434.  And finally, as the quiz for the lesson, the rough draft of the translations at the end of the chapter are edited for accuracy; this can be done opened book.  Mom, correct and grade this quiz immediately with the student.  Any lesson not mastered should be re-worked the following week, in a week’s time.
 
If your student is consistently spending more than four or five hours a week on this course it is important to scale back!  Have your student study the course on a timer.  If his schedule calls for studying Latin every weekday for forty-five minutes starting at 9:00 a.m. then when the timer goes off at 9:45 a.m., have the student close the book and move on to the next

Credit Information for Students in Grades 9 - 12: 36 Week STAACP = 10 credits; 0.3 credits per completed course plan week

GENERAL NOTES ABOUT HIGH SCHOOL LANGUAGES:
 
•   Tracking and reporting the student’s approximate hours studying a foreign language is the only way to earn high school credits in Language.  Unless the Language course has a STAA weekly lesson plan laid out (check your curriculum guide), spending time in study and instruction is the ONLY way to earn credits.
 
•   20 high school credits in the same foreign language are required for graduation.  Most colleges want--and St. Thomas Aquinas Academy recommends--that students study the same foreign language for 2 years in a row, 4 quarters a year, 4-5 hours a week for 8-9 weeks each quarter.   
 
•   When studying a language, the student should study it for AT LEAST thirty minutes a day, five days a week, every week of the quarter.  Ideally, the language should be studied for 45-60 minutes a day, five days a week, every week of the quarter (yes, just like math).
 
•   All work done in a single foreign language will be marked “Year 1” until the student’s four-year transcript shows 10 credits have been earned in the language.  For instance, if a student earns 5 Spanish credits is Grade 9 and 5 Spanish credits in Grade 10 the Spanish courses for each year will be labeled “Spanish Year 1”.  The next 10 credits earned in Spanish
