Welcome to the Latin Elective. You will be getting acquainted with the parent language of many other languages and with the language that is the source of many English/American words. You will be focusing on Classical Latin and using the Ecce Romani program. This program emphasizes immediate use of the language over grammar and syntax and bases its lessons on people, situations and correspondence that are historically accurate. You will need a spiral notebook, a writing implement, and your textbook for every class. There will be classwork and a few light homework assignments. You will be spending more than half of your time on the computer in vocabulary and comprehension practice and review. All of your quizzes and tests are on-line. Your grade will be PASS/FAIL and will be based on participation, assignments, quizzes and tests.
