    If you teach Latin and you want some background on the subject you need to read this book This is filled with valuable and interesting tid bits about the classical grammar schools and universities of the past 400 years It is the comprehensive book on the subject that I have seen but also very accessibleEducation circles talk about the traditional grammar translation method From what I can tell that refers to the 1800s Yet hear how Clarke describes the average grammar school in the 1500s The first aim of the grammar school was to teach the boys to speak Latin In fact some schools beat the kids if they spoke a word of English This continued even in the 1600s where it was said that They speak Latin everywhere This practice only died out by around the end of the 1600s According to Clarke this was due to the influence of Locke's utilitarianismAnother interesting note is that utility of Latin Why learn Latin? Well do you want to go to the university? Why would you do that? Because there you can study 3 things Law divinity or medicine So Latin was vocational if you wanted to be a lawyer a preacher or a doctorThe other weird thing is the prevalence of pagan Roman literature in the curriculum Some people complained about this the puritans I suppose but in the end it didn't change much The schools still always translated the same people Vergil Ovid Terrence Caesar the usual suspects It was calls Classical Education for a reason What is strange though is it seems to me that this was their entire curriculum All day every day you do Latin In other words you read write and memorize the classical authors Through these books I suppose you get history geography etcAnecdote The schools had a special time called standing up Students would pick passages of Latin and Greek to memorize One named Thomas Arnold woke up at 3 am for 6 days straight reciting 3000 lines of Homer in Greek Or another recites the whole Aeneid in Latin But of course there were the lazy students who didn't learn anything tooAnyway this has been too long for Goodreads But I also want to note that in the 1800s the Classical Schools were in decline and the kids hardly knew Latin and the schools and teachers for the most part did not maintain the high standards of former times They often abandoned classical studies for useful subjects some what due to the influence and insistence by parents that there kids learn something that will help them in the business world Sound familiar?
