Sep 14, rogue rated it it was amazing. I loved this book as a kid. It is laid out very well has great little distractions: info-boxes, quotes, "If You Lived in Ancient Rome Just a fun book to work from, and it's also incredibly thorough. Where else in a First Year Latin book will you be exposed to details such as the internal accusative?
I love that the first chapter starts you off with nouns the first declension , whereas Wheelock's starts you off with verbs. The rationale explained much later on is that Latin nouns are very specific whereas verbs are general with many meanings; thus verbs usually come last in a clause because you need the rest of the words to figure out which meaning of the verb to use. I reread this book as an adult and it lived up to all my charming childhood memories of Latin class. The only major flaw I can think of is that the end-of-chapter readings when they try to paraphrase Livy into "easier Latin" end up introducing some confusing and unclear constructions.
I appreciate the very logical approach Jenney takes. I taught High School Latin for the first time this semester and found the text very approachable for myself and my students. As a Latin student, I am glad I learned with the more poetic, whole-language approach of Wheelock, but not everyone fuses the art and science of foreign language acquisition in the same way I do. Jenney parses Latin into the bite sized chunks needed for rote mastery without dumbing it down. That is a marvelous feat.
If you cant get Wheelock's, get Jenny's. This is a textbook that pulls no punches. It doesnt have the old fashioned charm of Wheelock, but I'll be darned it makes you learn. If Wheelock is the poet of the latin textbooks, then Jenny is the roman general barking at you and pushing you down that 20 mile highway at top speed. Sep 05, jacky rated it liked it Shelves: textbook-reference. The kids at the school I teach at use the same Latin book I had almost twelve year ago. I remember the way the vocab boxes look and the culture sections.
I might borrow one sometime to scan the cover. I taught from this text book and I really liked the flow of the information.
It really felt like it progressed in a way that made the material easy to assimilate and build upon. I've never used the "Purple Jenney," but I suspect I would find it more to my liking. Jun 27, William Herbst rated it liked it. A very traditional grammar translation method Latin textbook. It is a classic and I have both taught from and tutored from this book.
It is quite good at what it sets out to do but it's methodology is currently possibly somewhat unjustly unpopular in American secondary education circles. If I could only go back to these times, the world would be a better place.
This book is incredible, you should all read it, you'll love it I promise. View 1 comment. Mar 09, Brigit added it. Ya Latin! I Ya Latin!
