  • Grammar summary for Ecce Romani Ch. 1-12 (Brad Tillery)

  • Reading card (Ginny Lindzey)

    This reading card was designed to be used with Unit 1 of the Cambridge Latin Course, hence its focus on nominative, dative, and accusative cases. It is important to teach students early on to read in word order, to focus on the morphology, and to train the brain to accept Latin as a language, not something to be decoded.

  • Teacher prepared mini-curriculum units (LATN 6770 project): “Finding Love at the Races”:
    Ovid’s Ars Amatoria I.135-164. Student packet. Teacher's packet. (Eric Adams)
  • This unit contains text, notes, and discussion questions for one of the most entertaining sections of the Ars Amatoria; the teacher’s guide provides an introduction, lesson plans for four days, and quizzes. The unit is designed for use at the end of Latin II or in Latin III and has the specific aim of familiarizing students with the type of Latin text and assessment they would encounter in an A.P. course.

  • Teacher prepared mini-curriculum units (LATN 6770 project): Daedalus and Icarus for Latin II. Student packet. Teacher's packet. (Susan Craig)
  • A unit on Daedalus and Icarus designed for use toward the end of Latin II; the unit’s vocabulary glosses were composed for students using Ecce Romani, but the materials can be employed in most 2nd-year classes so long as students have access to a Latin-English dictionary. The Teacher’s Guide includes teaching objectives, a list of grammatical structures students will encounter in the passage, lesson plans, Ecce Romani vocabulary review worksheets, a literal translation, answers to the vocabulary review worksheets and the discussion questions, and a 100-point test with answer key.

  • Teacher prepared mini-curriculum units (LATN 6770 project): The Res Gestae of Augustus, student materials and teacher’s guide. Student packet. Teacher's packet. ( Amy Neilson)
  • A 3-5 day unit on chapters 21-23 of Augustus’ RES GESTAE, intended for Latin II students in the latter half of the course. Vocabulary glosses, grammar notes, and commentary provide information for students not found in the Ecce Romani series through the second book. An accompanying teacher’s guide provides lesson plans, homework questions and solutions, cultural supplements and activities, and a class-length test with answer key. The unit includes special focus on reviewing verb synopses, Roman numerals, Roman dates, and the vocabulary of numbers. Additionally, cultural topics such as Augustus’ mausoleum complex, forum, building projects, and his production of gladiatorial games and naumachiae are highlighted.

  • Teacher prepared mini-curriculum units (LATN 6770 project): Horace Ode 3.9. Student packet. Teacher's packet. (James Parker)
  • A 3-day unit on Horace’s Ode 3.9, designed for late second semester Latin II students. Vocabulary glosses are generally based on those words students would not have encountered in Cambridge Latin Units 1-3, although the unit should work just as well for students using other textbooks, provided they have access to a Latin-English dictionary. The student text includes a brief biographical sketch of Horace as well as general information about Ode 3.9 itself. The teacher's guide includes a detailed three-day lesson plan as well as a large-format version of the poem for copying or projection. Answer keys are provided for all discussion questions and assessments.

  • Teacher prepared mini-curriculum units (LATN 6770 project): Aeneid VIII.190-212, 285-304: Hercules in the Aeneid. Student packet. Teacher's packet. (Bryant I. “Ivy” Stiles)
  • A unit on the Aeneid for students completing Latin II. The student text includes introduction, extensive vocabulary, quaestiones, and color illustrations; the teacher's guide provides suggested lesson plans, worksheets, literal translation, scansion, and additional resources for this section of the Aeneid.
