Reading card (Ginny
Teacher prepared mini-curriculum units (LATN 6770 project): “Finding
Love at the Races”:
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.
Ovid’s Ars Amatoria I.135-164. Student
packet. (Eric Adams)
Teacher prepared mini-curriculum units (LATN 6770 project): Daedalus
and Icarus for Latin II. Student
packet. (Susan Craig)
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): The Res
Gestae of Augustus, student materials and teacher’s guide. Student
packet. ( Amy Neilson)
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): Horace Ode
3.9. Student packet.
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): Aeneid VIII.190-212,
285-304: Hercules in the Aeneid.
Student packet. Teacher's
packet. (Bryant I. “Ivy” Stiles)
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.
