This program is available to students in grades 7-10 who have advanced skills in language arts and are interested in learning Latin.
ALL is designed so that the participating students can complete in two years the Latin language content assigned in Michigan High School Content Expectations (HSCE) for all four years of high school as well as meet the Common Core National Standards. Every semester of the GATE Latin program corresponds to one year of high school Latin.
The program emphasizes developing and refining two skills: reading and writing. Although Latin is no longer a spoken language, the course also draws upon speaking and listening skills to aid student comprehension. Discussions of language are anchored in topics of Roman and medieval culture, as well as in conversations about linguistics and the role of Latin in shaping English as a language. Students will take the National Latin Exam at the end of each year, and may elect to take AP Latin exam at the end of their second year.
