New Steps in Latin is a three book series designed specifically for middle school students (grades 6-9). The texts employ a minimum of explanation of grammatical principles, but focus on learning through numerous examples. The series offers students a complete graded introduction to Latin and grammar. Each book consists of 30 lessons intended for a year-long course in Latin. Taken together, the three books form a complete course for grades 7-9 or 6-8. Vocabulary in the series is based on Cicero, Vergil, Ovid, and Pliny. After completing New Steps in Latin, students will be ready to read these or other unaltered Latin authors. New Second Steps (grade 7 or 8): participles, infinitives, relative clauses, indirect statement; complex sentences; connected reading New Steps in Latin concentrates on essential grammar and morphology, and on the syntax of simple, compound, and complex sentences. It combines a minimum of explanation with a maximum of exercises (at least 40 sentences per lesson). It can be used alone, as a main text supplemented by readings and cultural material, or as a supplementary grammatical worktext for a reading-oriented course. The three books together can also function as a quick Latin review.
