Continuing Students: Foundations for Latin Units 6-11

*Please note that this course will run only if two or more students enroll.

Course Description:This class is for students who have previously taken one session of Elementa Online and would like to continue in the curriculum. Students will have the chance to explore the language, culture, and mythology of the ancient Romans, with a quick review of previous units and then continuing to complete Units 6-11 of the Elementa Foundations for Latin student workbook. If a student has had a previous Latin class outside of the Elementa curriculum, they may wish to start with this course and review the first units independently. This course focuses on the connections between Latin and other languages by exploring English derivatives and establishing a foundational understanding of parts of speech.


Level: This class is intended for students (2nd-8th grade) who have already completed one session of Elementa Online. It may also be appropriate for young students who have taken some Latin through a different channel. 

Textbook: Elementa Foundations for Latin student workbook  (2nd edition)

Sections capped at: 8 students. If the course is sold-out, please fill out this waiting-list form.

Robert Ziomkowski

Robert Ziomkowski has degrees in History from Siena College (B.A., 1991) and Cornell University (M.A., 1994; Ph.D., 2000), and a post-doctoral degree from the Pontifical Institute of Mediaeval Studies (L.M.S., 2002). His research focuses on medieval Platonism and cosmology. His publications include a translation and study of a text by the eleventh-century polemicist Manegold of Lautenbach, as well as a study guide for Western Civilization and articles in the New Dictionary of the History of Ideas and PLOS ONE (“Mathematical Philology”). He attended Fr. Reginald Foster’s summer Latin course in 1994 while doing manuscript research at the Vatican Library, and his fascination with human languages has merged with an interest in computer languages (JavaScript, Python) for the creation of computerized Latin exercises. His other interests include animation and video editing; with his former students at Ithaca College, he produced a short film in Latin on Homer’s Odyssey entitled Ulixes.
