Report Henle Latin - learn along with my 6th grader, or just facilitate? in General Education Discussion Board Posted Thursday at 05:09 PM On 1/20/2021 at 10:52 AM, 2_girls_mommy said: If he is going to continue latin further, I would say you need to learn it, unless you are going to enroll him in an online class with a teacher who knows the material. If you just facilitate, it would be like handing a kid an Algebra textbook to figure out on his own. Yes, some kids could read the text and grasp it. But most need a teacher to work out practice problems with them and to help correct work and to know what they are looking at. (when you grade Latin translations, there can be different translations that are correct. You don't want to be counting off because it doesn't look exactly like the book's answer if it is correct, etc.) He might do fine this year. I am just thinking about as you get deeper into it. We went through Henle 3 over the course of high school with my dd for Latin credits of 1-4. We also prepped for the National Latin Exams each year. If I wasn't working the material and learning it with her, I would have most definitely needed to pay for an expensive online class to teach it at some point. The MP guides for Henle that I have seen (just for Henle I, I don't know if they have them for after that?) are good. They break it down into lessons similar to their Form series which is an even better program for beginners. First Form uses their own exercises and uses Henle I as well. We did First over two years for Latin 1 and 2 in 8th and 9th grades for high school credit it was so good. And dd scored amazingly on the NLE exams for levels 1 and 2 with it. Thank you!
