Professor Gerberding stalked into my Latin 101 class in college and slammed a brand new copy of Wheelock’s Latin onto my desk.
“Welcome to Latin! Learn it before you die!”
And I did.
Later, when I had kids, I wanted them to study Latin – and sooner than their poor Mama began to learn it.
The problem is, you can’t just throw a copy of Wheelock’s onto a 9-year-old’s desk and insist that they keep up.
I had no idea how to go about teaching Latin to younger kids. Hence, we kissed A LOT of frogs to find our Latin curriculum prince.
