Different Looks at Different Books II: We finished the grammar, but what comes next?
Athenaze Book 1
A Reading Course in Homeric Greek
Ancient Greek Alive
Bristol Classical Commentary, Odyssey Book 9
TJ-choice units for IV/V- many genres and periods (Harry Potter, medieval Latin [Brendan, Bayeux tapestry, Geoffrey of Monmouth)
A different approach to authors:
Using Copernicus, Holbergius (inspiration for Jules Verne), Petrus Maffeus (Japan) to teach about the subjunctive. Teaching Classical authors after the medieval.
Laudatio Turiae in Latin III- read whole in English, pick sections in Latin to be read.
Cicero to Res Gestae to Petronius to Pliny to Cupid and Psyche
Latin IV- mythology- Cupid and Psyche, Ovid. No textbook; looks at text himself and chooses passages, text from Latin Library and other sources. Teach students about apparatus criticus. Read whole in English, focus on an aspect of Latin, project/product as result.
Choosing passages- based on a theme, chronology, what resonates with kids, what resonates with you.
