RanchGirl Posted September 7, 2012 Share Posted September 7, 2012 After Latin for Children A & B, would you have your 8th grader do level C or move into Latin Alive 1? My children also take another foreign language (which they will take all through high school, goal is to become fluent in that language) and they are both much more interested in and well-suited for STEM careers, so I don't know that complete mastery of Latin is required. I just consider it part of a classical college prep program, primarily for the brain stretching and vocab development. I definitely want them to do 4 years of Latin. So my possible sequences are: grade 5: Latin for Children A grade 6: Latin for Children B grade 7: Latin for Children C grade 8: Latin Alive! 1 grade 5: Latin for Children A grade 6: Latin for Children B grade 7: Latin for Children C grade 8: Latin Alive! 1 grade 9: Latin Alive! 2 (though I really prefer not to add a 5th year as it will get in the way of already full high school schedules) grade 5: Latin for Children A grade 6: Latin for Children B grade 7: Latin Alive! 1 grade 8: Latin Alive! 2 Also what would be a goal in this area to show completion? Just passing the tests with the curriculum or would this sequence allow them to pass the National Latin Exam level 1? How many years of study would be recommended to pass the SATII for Latin?
