This course provides students with the fundamental principles of the language as well as an understanding of the history, culture and mythology of the classical world. This provides the foundation and inspiration for many of the topics addressed in Social Studies, English and Fine Arts courses. The emphasis will be upon developing comprehension and critical thinking skills. Latin students can expect to see significant benefits in vocabulary growth, reading comprehension skills and pattern recognition.
Successful completion of both the seventh grade sequence I and the eighth grade sequence II course is the equivalent of one full year of high school Level I Latin and will appear on the high school transcript.
