Product Description
This lesson allows for first year Latin students to translate a real, authentic text in Latin. Heavily scaffolded, the lesson is written for teacher and students to co-construct the translation. First the students brainstorm derivatives then slowly get more and more information until they can translate the lesson. Finally, the students examine the grammar to see what information they can gleam about Roman Society.

Originally I created this for first years who knew multiple tenses and cases. Now I use it with 7th grader students who only know the difference between nominative and accusative singular.

The first time I did this with a particularly challenging group of students, I had a student say "Wow Magistra, class didn't suck today."

Any teacher with a passing knowledge of Latin could use this recipe in his or her classroom.
