The Latin I Tutorial covers most of basic grammar and syntax
and includes readings in Latin, beginning with short passages about ancient history and mythology and progressing to short
selections from many ancient authors, including the Vulgate (Latin Bible). The course will include some cultural and historical
study about the Roman and medieval world. The class takes the students through the first 24 chapters of Wheelock's Latin.
This online class will include weekly answer keys
to the homework, quarterly tests, memorizing the Lord's Prayer and the Apostle's Creed, and the students will be provided
with help in preparing for the National Latin Exam in March, if they wish to take it (the NLE is an optional event, in addition
to the regular Latin class, which covers some basic Roman History, dress, customs, conversational Latin, common Latin Sayings,
ancient Roman geography, etc.).
The course will require about 45 minutes
to an hour of study time per day (apart from class time) for most students.
Prerequisite: This course is for students 14 years old and older.
This is a two-hour class which meets once a week (the tutors are always available throughout the week via email, phone,
and online message boards set up to give the students an opportunity to discuss the work together and with the tutors):
Thursdays 7:00-8:50 AM Pacific Time
