Latin 7 provides an introduction to the Latin language and Roman culture. Students read stories which follow a Roman family as they prepare to move from their home in the country to the city of Rome. Through these stories, students learn about many topics such as daily Roman life, the Roman family, geography, social class, and the Roman house. Students will also learn about mythology and the founding of Rome.

Homework is an essential part of learning Latin. Homework provides an opportunity for practice and prepares students for class. Homework is not graded but is checked. If a homework assignment takes students more than thirty minutes, they may stop there.
Students may retake assessments. At times, there will be opportunities in class to make up or retake assessments. Other times, students will need to schedule a time outside of class.
Required and Recommended Materials
- Students must come prepared with a binder or a section in a binder for Latin. This binder must be divided into three sections: one for chapter packets, one for vocabulary, and one for history and culture. Students need to have this binder in class with them every day.
- Students will receive a copy of our book, Ecce Romani, where they can find the stories that we read. This copy is for them to take home and leave at home until the end of the school year. There are other copies available to use in class.
Students can always either email me or come up to me to ask for extra help. I can meet with students before school, during lunch, or after school.
Classroom Behavioral Expectations and Rewards/Consequences
- This class is all about respect and learning. I ask that students respect me and each other, participate to the best of their abilities, and refrain from any activity which might prevent them or anybody else from learning.
- If a student engages in an activity that is disrespectful or distracting, I will first give a verbal warning. If the behavior continues, I may call home or ask the student to stay after school.
- Being respectful and engaged means we can learn more and do more fun, involved, and creative activities and projects!
