Description: Classics Club is for any Middle School student who is interested in learning more about Ancient Mediterranean Culture,  Archaeology,  Literature, Architecture, and Language.  We will engage in different projects throughout the school-year to better understand ancient themes. We will also delve into lessons concerning how we, especially Americans, are influenced today by ancient civilizations while gaining a rudimentary understanding of Latin. Our study of Latin will have two goals: 1. To understand English at its root levels (grammar and vocabulary) 2. Give students the confidence to enroll in Latin courses in high school.

 

Classics will be split into 3 sessions this year. Latin, history and mythology will be spread throughout each session. Below are the major projects that will be the focus of individual sessions:

 

Session 1 Project Focus Area: 

Language - Introduction to Writing Systems - Hieroglyphics, Cuneiform, and Ancient Greek

 

Session 2 Project Focus Area:

Architecture - Building Egyptian, Mesopotamian, and Greco-Roman public buildings

 

Session 3 Project Focus Area:

General History/Geography/Literature - Comic Book Creation
