Summary

Designed to bring students to the point where they can read Latin fluently, DISCE!combines the best of both the grammar approach and reading method. An original, unified story provides controlled introduction to vocabulary and grammar in context while also utilizing orderly and clear grammar explanations in every chapter. It thus combines the grammar approach and the reading-based approach. The guiding principle throughout is what is best for the student and for the particular concepts being studied at any given moment. Additionally, Disce! weaves culture throughout the text, and stresses the role of Classical culture in the modern world by the many links drawn between Latin and modern languages, and between Roman practices and modern culture. Disce! is also the first text to be supported by MyLatinLab, providing the most modern course management and online support to a Classical language. DISCE!is for use in introductory Latin programs and is suitable for both high school and college students.

Kenneth F. Kitchell, Jr. is professor of Classics at the University of Massachusetts.  Prior to this he taught at Louisiana State University for 22 years and he taught high school in Chicago for two years. He also served, in 1989, as the Gertrude Smith Professor and co-director of the Summer Program of the American School of Classical Studies in Athens, Greece.

 

He has won several teaching awards, including The Amoco Foundation Award for Outstanding Undergraduate Teaching (1980), American Philological Association Award for Excellence in the Teaching of Classics (1983), LSU Student Government Association Faculty Award (1991), and the Robert L.
