Second Year Henle Latin Quizzes & Tests
The Second Year Henle Latin Lesson Plans contain detailed lesson plans that will guide you through the advanced grammar and syntax lessons in Henle Latin II. We recommend completing this year of translation practice before attempting to read Caesar. For each week, there is a chart provided which schedules the work over four days. The daily work is divided into three different categories: Opening (review, recitations), Lesson, and Closing (specific grammar and vocabulary to be studied in preparation for testing). A quiz is scheduled for most weeks which can be found in the Memoria Press Second Year Latin Quizzes & Tests.
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
With the goal of keeping Latin studies continual, challenging, and enjoyable, Memoria Press has developed this series of teacher manuals and quiz packets to make the Henle Latin course more manageable for teacher and student. The Teacher Manuals (formerly Study Guides) each outline a one-year course and contain teaching points, daily lesson plans by week with check boxes for completion, and a detailed answer key for the Henle exercises. Each week's assignment grid includes recitation, vocabulary grammar and reading assignments, exercises, extra-credit assignments and the weekly quiz. Teaching information and assignments are provided by week in the first part of the manual and appendixes contain grammar cards and an answer key. Units I & II covers the basic grammar relating to five kinds of Latin nouns and two kinds of Latin adjectives (Henle I, pgs 1-98). Units III - V studies the basics of Latin verbs along with a short addition segment on nouns and adjectives (Henle I, pgs 99-224). Units VI-XIV cover more advanced grammar topics including tenses, clauses, 3rd conjugation -io verbs, irregular verbs and more (Henle I, pgs 225-464).
The Quiz/Exam books each include 30-33 weekly student quizzes, a final exam and answer keys for both. ~ Janice
Memoria Press now offers complete Curriculum Manuals and grade-level curriculum packages for PK-10 using the classical methodology. Recitation is used in every level for memorization of basic facts, systematic phonics and good books are used for reading education, copywork is used for teaching Bible truths, and music and art are included for enrichment in the early (K-3) levels. Each Curriculum Manual contains complete lesson plans for a one-year course of study. The Curriculum Manuals are well-formatted and easy to use. In the front of each book you will find a checklist of the materials needed at that level, an explanation of this curriculum, instructions for lesson implementation, a recommended schedule and blank schedule for your own planning purposes, and 33 weeks of detailed lesson plans. Lessons include assignments from the books used at each grade level, as well as activity suggestions. The appendices include a variety of material for that grade level, and may include: prayers, letter activities, recitation, memory verses, read-aloud book list, poetry list and selections, and a paintings/music list for kindergarten and first grade. These pages are reproducible for family or classroom use. Although most of the guides have been available for several years, the curriculum was restructured in 2015, with many of the programs originally included in 3rd grade now with a slower pacing to span 3rd and 4th grade. Guides for grades 3 and up have been modified to reflect this change, while the lower-level guides have only had minor changes. If you are already midway into the program with the original guides, you can still continue in that track with the older guides, now
