Review

'This is the series I've been waiting for for 38 years.'
- Kevin Finnigan, Skaneateles High School, Skaneateles, New York

'The text is clear, well-paced, and beautiful in its presentation.'
- Ann Brady, Duchesne Academy of the Sacred Heart, Houston, Texas

'You have done a great service to Latin instruction at the high school level with the publication of Latin for the New Millennium. I'm virtually on the edge of my seat waiting for the Level 2 text. I never thought at my age and experience (62 years old and 41 years teaching) I would have the chance to try out a new Latin text, let alone a great one. It used to be that students only started reading Latin authors in the original after at least a year and a half of study. With LNM, they start on day one. From the illustrations, to the exercises, to the approach, I love this book.'
- M. Burton Hopkins Jr., Salem High School, Salem, New Jersey

'I appreciate the exercises and the readings especially and the books contains much of what I as a veteran teacher tell my students. I will retire very soon and this text and its support materials will allow a younger . . . teacher to provide students with an in-depth Latin education.'
-Suzanne Sheahan, World Languages Coordinator/Latin Teacher
Wamogo Regional High School
Litchfield, Connecticut

'[Latin for the New Millennium] is the best secondary textbook that I have ever used. Having used everything from Jenney to Ecce to Latin for Americans to Cambridge, I really appreciate using Latin for the New Millennium for a few reasons. First, it is clear in terms of terminology. Grammatical terms, sometimes troublesome for students new to Latin, are explained thoroughly and used copiously. Additionally, authentic Latin is referenced from the earliest stages of Latin. Students meet authors and have a good overview of the changes in Rome, in literature, politics, and society. Finally, I think it is the best preparation for the AP while still attending to conversation and oral Latin. Not only am I confident that I can finish the 1st year text in a year, but I am also confident that my students will have a better understanding of the Romans as well as their language and our own. Having the built-in support in the online resource center is also valuable and something that I would like to see us use and develop as we mature in the series. From a teaching standpoint, it is so helpful to have not only the resource center but also all of the ancillaries. With Latin for the New Millennium there is no need for teachers to re-invent the wheel each and every year. Support (Pedagogical, technological, and ancillary) is built into the series and into to system as a whole to allow teachers to use, borrow, and adapt what they need in terms of worksheets, explanations, vocabulary lists, and study guides.

My Latin I students feel that they have an advantage not only in the classroom but also in their extracurricular competitions because of this text and even reference points (especially about Cicero and Caesar so far) from the Latin text in their History and English classrooms.' --Sherry Jankowski, The Meadows School - Las Vegas, Nevada

'Latin for the New Millennium organizing principle is the story of the Latin language itself, from the second century B.C.E. through the Middle Ages to the Renaissance and modern world...This sequential approach to contextualizing the language makes it much easier for students to see the importance and endurance of the Latin language and to make connections between the ancient and modern world.

Latin for the New Millennium utilizes a 'fusion' approach to language acquisition. By combining techniques from the traditional grammar-translation method with the contemporary reading approach, this course aims to teach students how to read fluently with grammatical accuracy and syntactical awareness...'

--Sharon Kazmierski, Clearing House, Classical Outlook

Format: Hardcover
I currently use this book in a middle school classroom, and I am about evenly split on its high and low points. I am aware that it is intended for high school and college students, but it is the text that was in place when I stepped in, and I will continue to use it as a curriculum template so our program is in line with our upper school's curriculum.

The text is meant, I believe, to be a hybrid of the strict grammar-translation method, and the intuitive approach. It is likely best suited to high school students, as I have found it to be lacking in developmentally appropriate readings for my students, and college students or adults might be bored with it. One of the other reviewers praised it for being a good self-teaching tool, and I can see how it would work well for someone who is very motivated.

PROS: Excellent resource for teaching/learning Latin as a living language. As a supporter of spoken Latin in the classroom, I have found this text's greatest source of riches to be the sections of Oral Latin. Students can learn conversational phrases and terms for things that are prevalent in modern classrooms--they have even included Latin words for things like dry erase marker, and white board. This helps teachers to conduct lessons in Latin; if the teacher doesn't know the appropriate phrases, grammatical terms and sample questions in Latin can be found in the teacher's edition.

Each chapter offers sections on culture, history, and mythology. My students have loved learning about Cicero, and mythology is always a hit.

The chapters provide a logical flow (for the most part) between grammatical concepts such as the various uses of the ablative, adjectives, declensions, and the passive voice.

Format: Hardcover
If you are attempting to teach yourself Latin, I HIGHLY recommend this book. I've gone through Wheelock,Jenney, Gummer and Henle and I think this and Henle are the best. Henle has the advantage overall because you can get texts with all exercise answers for Latin I-IV. For just a first year learning experience, however, this New Millenium text is the best especially if you buy the teacher's edition to get answers for all the exercises. This is a great addition to the field. This book has great graphics and does a nice job of integrating Roman history and culture. It uses some of Wheelock's techniques in introducing readers to real Latin prose early. It does not attempt to cover as much ground as quickly as Wheelock does but I view that as a positive. I'm looking forward to buying the second year New Millenium text.
