Category Description for Henle Latin:

This Latin course from Loyola Press was designed for the serious student. It appears to be very thorough and fairly rigorous. The four levels were designed to use one each year of high school, for a total of four years of Latin. The digest sized books vary in length between 480 and 627 pages. The study of Latin is done systematically, starting with the basics and moving into readings and translations. The skills covered in the first books include a thorough mastery of forms, basic syntax, and simple vocabulary to prepare students for simple readings and translations. Each lesson is followed by several exercises. Because different people learn faster, the exercises vary in difficulty and students are not required to work them all, rather, they can choose ones that they are ready for. Any required exercises are marked. There is plenty of material for both class and private study. The second book is more intensive. Besides reviewing the first year's lessons, students tackle readings from Caesar's Commentaries, work extensive exercises, and complete Latin-English and English-Latin activities. There are several boxes of vocabulary for each lesson. Students who have completed the first year should be able to start right into the readings; however, the first 16 lessons provide a review and a slower start into the second year if students are not ready to jump right into Caesar. The readings also progress in difficulty, starting with simple sentences. The third book is an introduction to Cicero. The majority of the exercises are composed of readings, which the student translates from English into Latin, or from Latin into English. The exercises are all based on Cicero. When students progress to the fourth level of Henle Latin, they are translating longer readings. The text is based entirely from Cicero and Virgil. All four books are written in a very non-flowery and straightforward way, and each one includes word lists and English-Latin and Latin-English vocabulary in the back of the book. There is also an accompanying book


If you like the idea of using Henle for high school Latin but feel you need some structure, these syllabi from Mother of Divine Grace School are what you are looking for. Providing 32 weeks of daily lesson plans as well as weekly quizzes and quarterly exams, the plans are specific (do exercises _____ on pp _____) and thorough while detailing chart and vocabulary card preparation and review. Students can expect to spend one hour per day on the lessons which include vocabulary, grammar, chants and exercises. Making vocabulary cards, declension and conjugation charts and compiling a Latin notebook is considered fundamental. Chant charts are recommended and can be either purchased from Emmanuel Books or made by the student. Exercises may be done orally, as written assignments, or even as tests but the student is expected to complete all the exercises. There is no copyright information in these books, but the blank quizzes and tests appear to be reproducible for single family use. Answer keys are filled-in versions of each. There are also blank conjugation and declension charts which appear to be reproducible. Each syllabus represents one high school credit. Grading charts for both 1st and 2nd semester are also provided. Coil-bound, 200 pgs, pb. ~ Janice
