HUMANITIES CLASSES

bRAINMAKER currently offers math classes, clubs, and tutoring only. However, we are pleased to have the opportunity to coordinate our schedules and share our facilities with several affiliated humanities instructors. Please note: Each of the classes & programs below is run independently, so each has its own registration process. 

Latin 1: $250/semester + $75 annual registration fee

Monday, 11:00-12:45

 7th-12th graders

 

Salvete! This two-semester course will cover fundamental Latin structures (e.g., verbs, nouns, adjectives, adverbs, prepositions) and provide a review of English grammar in the process. Students will build vocabulary, reading, and writing skills, and gain a deeper understanding of Latin’s influence on the English language. Students will also do a special project each semester about Roman culture. Learning Latin is very challenging but is worth the effort! This course will also be very challenging but will be fun!

 

(Text to be determined. It is expected to be less than $30.)

 

Course registration form and questions: please email me at asheville.schola@gmail.com or feel free to call me directly at 206-251-5611 between 12:00-7:00 p.m.

Bio: Gennell Lockwood, M.Ed.

 

I have had over 20 years of experience teaching English in community colleges and universities, including M.I.T., Boston University, Tufts University, and the University of Seattle. I have also provided tutoring in English, Latin, and German. After receiving a B.A. in Classical Humanities from the George Washington University, I was awarded a scholarship through the Fulbright Hays Commission to study Classical Linguistics in Bonn, Germany. I have a total of eleven years of formal Latin education, which continues to give me a deep appreciation of the language and a very solid foundation for learning other languages. My passion for learning and instructing languages is matched with a love for international travel and deep appreciation of other cultures. At present, I am trying my best to play the cello beyond “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” and overcome a life-long inability to read a map.
