Hunter Posted September 2, 2012 Share Posted September 2, 2012 Back in the 1990s, I started my son with a library copy of Latin Made Simple, and then saved up for Henle Latin. At the beginning I had to make up things for him, not being sure if I was doing it right, but it it got him ready to start Henle effortlessly, so...it worked I guess :-0 Most of the grammar he learned, he learned while he was learning Latin and Greek. It's all a bit foggy now years later. I want to refresh my own Latin and would like to be prepared to teach Latin. So I'd like to work through a text I intend to teach from. I tend to lean towards Henle because I've used it, and we all know how nauseatingly attached I am to narrow curricula. :tongue_smilie: Henle is only 500 words and prepares for Caesar. I remember there used to be a lot of talk about a good Latin teacher being able to mostly just teach from a grammar and not even needing a text. I don't even know what I'm asking. I'm just opening up conversation to discuss oldschool latin instruction, what has changed, what is still available, what is better now, etc. I no longer have either my copy of Trivium Pursuit or Climbing Parnassus, to refer to. I need to find my copy of LCC 1st edition buried on my harddrive somewhere. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
