Let’s Learn Latin will introduce elementary and middle school teachers to the world of Latin and the ancient Romans through a series of engaging, standards-connected lessons. Teachers get to play the role of students, learning the material through the same activities and lessons that they will be able to use in their own classrooms. Participants will enjoy learning the basics of Latin, by working through 80% or more of a colorful, interesting, kid-friendly text called Minimus, richly supplemented by effective and innovative activities to practice the material. Other topics include Latin vocabulary, word roots, and Roman culture and mythology – all of which integrate seamlessly with Minimus. No previous experience with Latin is needed!
