Aequora offers the opportunity to introduce the ancient Roman world and Latin language to elementary and middle school students. Interactive lessons and scripted plans make the Aequora curriculum fun, engaging, and simple to use.
Through Aequora, we teach the basics of Latin grammar and vocabulary in such a way that Latin provides students with the tools to improve their mastery of English and Spanish (and other languages!), but an equally crucial goal of the curriculum is to expose students to Roman culture and inspire their curiosity for the ancient world at large. Aequora can be used by teachers of all backgrounds regardless of their previous experience with Latin.
Aequora Online provides audio-visual resources, slides, and videos to accompany 34 core lessons, so you can implement at your own pace – once a week, daily, or whatever best fits your students’ needs.
Upon completion of the curriculum, students will be able to:• Recall basic Latin phrases and a vocabulary of 100+ Latin words.• Identify the parts of speech in a Latin or English sentence.• Critically discuss aspects of Roman culture and its influence on the present.• Recognize major characters and narratives from classical mythology and analyze its influence on contemporary literature and popular culture.• Correctly determine the meanings of English and Spanish words by using knowledge of Latin roots and affixes.
The Aequora textbook includes eleven units, and each unit is composed of three main sections:
Aequora is also a FREE Latin and Literacy program designed to inspire future classicists and future classics teachers.
