Course Description

        Latin 8 continues an introduction to the Latin language and Roman culture.  Students read stories which follow a Roman family as they 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, travel in the ancient world, Roman roads, social class, and the treatment of slaves.  Students will also continue their study of mythology and history by completing projects on mythological monsters, the seven kings of Rome, and heroes of the Roman Republic.

Course Expectations and Assessments

Course Policies 

        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 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.
