Companion Curriculum for Wheelock's Latin

By: Dr. Melissa Schons Bishop

Wheelock's Latin for High School and College Students

Companion Curriculum - $60 

Wheelock's Companion CurriculumTime-saving supplemental curriculum reinforces vocabulary, forms and reading. Each chapter contains vocabulary practice and etymology. Grammar practice highlights acquisition of new forms, recognition of forms in context, and consistent review of previously learned material. Sententiae Antiquae are enhanced by exercises that put the timeless ideas of the Romans into a context that is readily understandable by the beginning Latin learners of this millenium, and work with connected passages helps students learn to read for context as well as accuracy. This time-saving curriculum provides teachers at both the high school and college levels with engaging, interesting supplements to the classic intro Latin textbook and provides a counterpoint to the book's formal approach to grammar in ways that support student comprehension and retention. 

Assessments - $75

AssessmentsAssessments include 2 versions of a vocabulary quiz and 1-2 versions of a grammar/translation quiz in each chapter. Vocabulary variations offer one quiz that targets definitions only, or for more rigorous testers, a version that requires genitive singulars/genders for nouns and principal parts for verbs. Grammar/translation assessments may also occur in 2 formats, one focusing more on reading comprehension and identification of forms, the more rigorous version includes manipulation and creation of forms and literal translations. Unit tests follow every 4th chapter (5 total, also in the 2 formats), and there is a midterm exam following chapter 10 with a final exam following chapter 20. All vocabulary quizzes have Quia activities (online drills and activities) for review. Answer key is provided for all assessments. 

Magic Lists - $40

Magic ListsMagic lists are running vocabulary lists that give students the dictionary entry of each word in a sentence or passage, in the order that it occurs, EVERY time it appears in the passage. These lists assist students with vocabulary acquisition because they continuously confront the words, and the repetition of more commonly used vocabulary reinforces their memory. Magic lists level the playing field in any Latin classroom, because now all students have all the vocabulary, all the time. No downtime waiting for a student to remember a basic word, then having to decide if you will be the Human Dictionary, or call on one of the two or three students who always remember everything. This tool significantly reduces student anxiety about working on reading passages, and it gives teachers an edge in approaching reading at sight, because it allows you to focus on the forms and sentence structure instead of tripping over meanings. Quia activities (online games and drills) accompany the required vocabulary given in each chapter.
