I received this question:
“When do you start your next henle online latin class? How are classes structured? We have never done online classes before.
I was hoping to count it as high school foreign language credit. Do you set it up as equivalent to 1/2 crdt per semester class?
Thanks for your time
Btw, I really appreciate your sense of humor in VL. My kids are still getting used to it. ☺”
Here is my reply:
I moved all my classes to my own site about 6 months ago. You can find all kinds of information here: https://dwanethomas.com/classes-2/
As for the structure, students will log into class with me once a week. In class, we will read together through the current chapter. They will hear my voice, and will see the Latin chapter on the screen in front of them. We will discuss difficult concepts in class. They will do some translation in class. After class, they will work on a weekly assignment. They will send the assignment/translation to me and I will personally grade their work. I will respond to them, pointing out any mistakes they made. I will give them pointers in my responses.
The online classes are rigorous. They are for students who want to go beyond Visual Latin. They fulfill all the requirements for high school Latin.
My own kids are still getting used to my humor. Maybe. Some of them are saying they can’t wait to move out. 🙂
