Wheelock Study Aids

Magister Smith's Comprehensive Wheelock Links

Teacher Christopher Smith uses WHEELOCK'S LATIN in teaching his high-schoolers. I asked if he would share an outline of his curriculum and he graciously agreed. Here're a few of his comments and a link to his curriculum map:

"I share this document with my students each semester. It contains nearly all resources they will need to complete the course, like my grammar presentations, packets with further explanations and practice, helpful videos, and miscellaneous culture resources. I complete Wheelock's in three semesters (90 minute daily meetings for a semester) and move into Eutropius before moving towards the AP curriculum in Latin IV & V. I include a lot of culture/history in my classes, so my pacing may differ from others."
