Divided into thirds, The Latin-Centered Curriculum addresses the "why" of classical education; how to use the classical education curriculum; and suggestions on creating a compendium of weekly schedules complete with teaching hints. Beginning with the Greek understanding of education as a holistic, literary, conservative, undertaking, and moving through the Reformation, Enlightenment, its decline under Dewey, and its modern resurgence from Dorothy Sayer's 1947 Oxford lecture, this book is worth reading for the history of classical education alone. With a detailed scope & sequence and a healthy emphasis on working at the child's--not the curriculum's--pace, reasons for using the Trivium, advice on teaching phonics, classical languages, arithmetic, copywork, literature, AP options, specific curriculum recommendations, reading lists, and other extraordinarily helpful advice, this is the perfect book for those looking to dive deeper into the well of classical education. 236 pages, softcover, 2nd edition.

This second edition includes

  • An expanded Great Books program for high school
  • New introductory chapters
  • Restructured subjects for easier state reporting
  • Updated recommendations for Latin, Greek, History, Science, and Religion
  • Detailed weekly schedules, tips for large families, A self-education program for adults, and more!

    Over half of the English language is derived from Latin.

    • amateur--amo, I love
    • Montana--mons, mountian
    • Patriot--patria, native land.

    These and thousands of other words we use every day keep this "dead" language-a language of kings and poets, of scrolls and secrets-alive. And this means that when we study Latin, we're not just learning about Rome-we're learning about ourselves.

    Designed for students in grades 3 & up, this workbook will equip students with a solid foundation in classical Latin. Divided into 4 seven-week units, students will learn conjugations, present/future/imperfect/irregular/future perfect, and passive verb endings, as well as demonstrative pronouns and other helpful Latin grammatical and vocabulary terms. Worksheets provide room for chart completions, translations, derivative identification, and additional review exercises. Newly revised and expanded, this book covers the very basics of farming, sailing, constellations, family and body vocabulary, as well as verb and noun endings. 192 pages, softcover.
