Description

Salvete! (Greetings!) Have you ever wondered what it was like to live
during the Roman Republic, and write or speak Latin? Do you want to learn
to wrap yourself in a toga, learn about mosaics, Roman holidays, and learn
what the Romans ate and how they prepared it? Each day will have a
theme (for example, greetings and names, trades, pastimes, and
architecture). We will also explore a myth each day (including writing and
acting out our own mythological play), and an overview of a period of
Roman history. Some activities will include decorating a t-shirt with a Latin
motto, coloring or creating a mosaic, learning about Roman recipes and
food preparation. We’ll watch some video clips about Roman culture. We’ll
do all these things and learn a little Latin along the way! No previous
knowledge of Latin required.

Maureen Haviland is a Grade 9-12 Latin teacher at Lexington High School.
