Product Description:

Memoria Press has a knack for giving parents the confidence to tackle heavy literature with their children. This is done by providing background historical information on the authors and their time period as well as historical material relevant to the literature itself. Do a little studying in here before teaching the lessons and you should be able to answer your kids' questions like a professor!

Horatius at the Bridge is a story from ancient Rome, so it would be a great addition to any study of ancient culture or even a Latin language program. I like to see stories added to language studies. It gives the words some context about the people who speak it (or in the case of Latin, spoke it.) This story is a ballad or poem format. Parents are guided on meter and pronunciation. Each verse has a summary and characters are explained. There are lesson plans to follow. Hard names and words are spelled out phonetically and defined alongside the poem itself. This saves a lot of time with a dictionary.

In the back is a study guide for students. Comprehension questions are in sections and have plenty of space for kids to write their answers here. Some exercises are matching vocabulary words to synonyms, but most require a sentence or two to answer. There are maps of the various Roman regions, a glossary of ancient place names and their modern equivalents, and a comprehensive test with 19 questions that require kids to write one or two sentence answers. A complete answer key to the study guide questions and the test are in the back. Not reproducible. 75 pgs, pb ~ Sara
