Fourth Form Latin Instructional DVDs
Fourth Form Latin completes the journey of Latin grammar by reviewing all material in First, Second, and Third Form, completing all verb forms for all four conjugations by studying participles, infinitives, gerunds, and much more. Fourth Form continues to employ the identical format of First Form—an attractive, concise Student Text, systematic presentation in five units, extensive Workbook exercises, and a Teacher Manual with everything you need to successfully teach this course.
Based on twenty years of teaching experience, the revolutionary “grammar-first” First Form Series will be your guide as you and your students successfully climb the mountain of Latin Grammar all the way to the top! The uniqueness of the First Form Series lies in two features: (1) Commitment to the trivium model of teaching grammar systematically in order to facilitate retention and understanding, rather than topically, to facilitate translation; and (2) Extensive workbook exercises to ensure skills mastery and rapid recognition of inflected forms.
The Fourth Form Latin Instructional DVDs (6 discs, 12.75 hours, 15-25 minutes/lesson with some being longer) feature superb explanations by Cheryl Lowe. Cheryl Lowe is the author of the popular Latin programs Latina Christiana, Lingua Angelica, and the First Form Latin series, as well as The Greek Alphabet, Classical Phonics, First Start Reading, and English Grammar Recitation. She and her husband, Jim, have been married for forty years and have two sons, both of whom were National Merit Finalists. Cheryl discovered Latin when she homeschooled her sons and is the self-styled apostle of Latin, claiming that Latin has more educational value than any other subject you can teach your children. Cheryl has had wide teaching experience, in both content and venue, teaching everything from phonics, reading, math, Bible, and chemistry to Shakespeare and Latin, and teaching in public and private schools, as well as homeschooling. Her Fourth Form Latin Instructional DVDs include helpful on-screen notes, illustrations, and a full recitation!
