Description: Influential author and academic Dorothy Sayers said, “The best grounding for education is the Latin grammar.  I say this not because Latin is traditional and medieval, but simply because even a rudimentary knowledge of Latin cuts down the labor and pains of learning almost any other subject by at least 50 percent.”  Studies also show that Latin students consistently outperform all other students on the verbal portion of the SAT and continue to maintain a higher GPA in university.  This comprehensive and rigorous class presents Latin in an engaging and enjoyable manner.  Students will solidify their understanding of English grammar by learning to conjugate and decline Latin words.  Students will also translate Latin sentences in a logical progression, using all eight parts of speech.  The relevance of Latin in history, ancient, and contemporary culture will be explored, and English vocabulary will increase through the study of derivatives.  90% of all polysyllabic English words come from Latin!  Readings adapted from Latin literature will also develop logic and problem solving skills.  Training in Roman culture, myths, and history will be done through arts integration and hands-on projects.  Students will be required to memorize noun and verb endings, as well as about 275 Latin words.  Students should expect to spend between 2.5-3 hours each week on homework outside of class.  Access to email and internet is required.  One high school language credit.
