Teaching Latin in the Logic School

Karen Moore June 11, 2011

Presented at:
SCL Conference 2011


They have outgrown the cute songs and jingles, they have mastered amor, alas, amat; so what is next? This presentation gives practical advice on how to teach students in the logic stage of learning (grades 7-9) by making use of the styles of learning that suit them best. This not only includes building on the grammar lessons of previous years, but also training students in reading and literary analysis. Whether the student is new to Latin, or building upon the foundation established in the grammar school, Karen will provide teachers with strategies for facilitating the student's journey into the wonderful world of Latin literature.
