Abstract

The purpose of this action research study was to investigate the use of various interactive instructional methods to teach Latin II grammar to two classes of high school students. Data were collected in the following ways: (a) the researcher's own observations made during the implementation of the learning strategies; (b) student artifacts, such as homework assignments and exit slips to gain student perspective; and (c) student quiz scores to check for retention of material. Analysis of data revealed students benefited from interactive instructional methods in regards to learning and retaining Latin II grammar; specifically, the sorting literacy strategy was found to be most helpful. Specifically, students benefited from the sorting literacy strategy.
