I have been teaching Latin (Cambridge Latin) at a Catholic school for the past seven years. I look forward to beginning LC-1 this fall! I only have the kids one period per week (effectively, 40 minutes), and only for about a maximum of 35 weeks (after special events/conflicts). How could I best make use of these time contraints? I will have 5th-7th graders. I would like to complete the book in a "year"...about 35 sessions. Any suggestions as to effective pacing? What about additional time for reviews, tests, extra enrichment materials, etc? Can some lessons be combined or presented in alternative orders? I am thinking about two and a half meetings per lesson (100 minutes), but this would obviously imply continuing for a partial second "year". I don't want to dawdle and get boring, but I also do not want to rush the kids and frustrate them (as was usually the case with Cambridge Latin). Ideas? Comments?... Luckily, my principal has given me total control over the program: he is very open to "interesting" new ways of doing things.
