I've made a decision (I think) to continue my son's Latin by using Henle; he has been using Latin Book One ( the free vintage one by Scott and Horn), and is over half way through,
we are burning out. The problem? I need more teacher support. I have the free answer key for LBO, but I need more. I need a schedule. Something that tells him exactly what to do each day (or week). I need open and go, not sit and plan. I have six children, and limited brain power to devote to Latin planning right now. I am more than happy to facilitate his progress, grade quizzes, check homework, and say, "hmm, your subject needs to be in the nominative case," but I can't be the one that thinks through every step of every little thing for this class.
My son does have 1/2 credit of Latin done last year (through Latin Book One), and I would like to just keep on slow and steady and finish this race to get his two credits of foreign language. He is getting rather mule-like over LBO, though. He feels he has been doing this book forever, with no end in sight.
We cannot afford to outsource, and most online classes for high school Latin are too hard core for his interest level right now. He was pumped to learn Latin when he was six, but at sixteen, that love has moved on to other things. He is able to do well, but is not really motivated for Latin at the moment. He just wants to get. it. done. I too have let go of my visions of AP Latin that were dancing in my head, and I am ready to let good enough be good enough.
So, which guide(s) will get us two years of Henle, at a reasonable pace for an average student, without breaking the bank? Any advice or BTDT perspectives would be great.
