Latin 5 expands the skills acquired by students in Latin 4. Specific content includes, but is not limited to, expansion of vocabulary and translation skills through comprehension of selected readings. Vocabulary and grammar stress activities which are important to authors such as Caesar, Cicero, Plautus, Ovid, Catullus, Horace, Pliny, Sallust, Juvenal and Vergil. In presentational speaking, Latin students will present projects and reports of the research they have done about the culture, arts, history, politics, literature and mythology of the target language in English. For presentational writing, students will write essays of literary criticism to prepare for those expected in Advanced Placement and college classes.
Latin students will focus more on reading and interpreting written passages rather than using oral modes of communication.
English Language Development ELD Standards Special Notes Section:
Teachers are required to provide listening, speaking, reading and writing instruction that allows English language learners (ELL) to communicate for social and instructional purposes within the school setting. For the given level of English language proficiency and with visual, graphic, or interactive support, students will interact with grade level words, expressions, sentences and discourse to process or produce language necessary for academic success. The ELD standard should specify a relevant content area concept or topic of study chosen by curriculum developers and teachers which maximizes an ELL’s need for communication and social skills.
