Continuing Students: Foundations for Latin Units 6-11
Mondays, 7am (U.S. Eastern Time)
*Elementa classes only run with 2 or more student enrollments. If the signup threshold isn't met, Paideia will contact the families of enrolled students about potential alternatives, and/or refund tuition.
Course Description: This class is for students who have previously taken one session of Elementa Online and would like to continue in the curriculum. Students will have the chance to explore the language, culture, and mythology of the ancient Romans, with a quick review of previous units and then continuing to complete Units 6-11 of the Elementa Foundations for Latin student workbook. If a student has had a previous Latin class outside of the Elementa curriculum, they may wish to start with this course and review the first units independently. This course focuses on the connections between Latin and other languages by exploring English derivatives and establishing a foundational understanding of parts of speech.
Level: This class is intended for students (2nd-8th grade) who have already completed one session of Elementa Online. It may also be appropriate for young students who have taken some Latin through a different channel.
Textbook: Elementa Foundations for Latin student workbook (2nd edition)
Sections capped at: 8 students. If the course is sold-out, please fill out this waiting-list form.
