Secondary School Curriculum. Part I. Langauge, History, and Mathematics: The Latin Course


by Charles McCoy Baker 1906

INTRODUCTION The Latin work in the Horace Mann High School is arranged in two courses, a four-year and a five-year course. The five-year course is not yet in full operation, having been introduced in September, 1903. The course described in the following pages is the four-year course. A review of college entrance examinations in Latin of recent years will show that on passages set for translation many searching questions, are asked, demanding accurate knowledge of forms and syntax. The examinations on composition are tests of the same kind. The colleges then very evidently demand by their examinations that Latin be made a disciplinary study. Discipline, demanded by the colleges, is readily accepted as one of the aims of the course in Latin. While the study of Latin grammar and syntax is primarily a means to an end, namely, the ability to grasp the meaning of Latin sentences, yet the teaching looks toward the disciplinary side, which is to give training in keenness of analysis of sentences, and appreciation that Latin is a language systematic in form and logical in method of expression
