Scandite Muros readies students to scale the ever-intimidating "wall of Latin." Use the classroom-tested strategies to incorporate regular sight-reading into your Pre-AP®, AP®, and advanced Latin classes.
The Secret Weapon for AP® Success
From verb endings to participles to subjunctives, each chapter takes on the toughest elements of Latin and makes them accessible and compelling to every student through effective learning strategies, AP®-style multiple-choice questions, and passage-specific vocabulary lists.
Students will learn to identify different genres by spotting trends in verbs, various lyric meters, prose types, and more. Applying English word order rules helps students make judgments about word order while reading.
Sight-readings included in the text are broken down into manageable sections designed to accompany the required AP® selections of Vergil and Caesar. Use each passage to elicit further discussion on genre, authorial styles, and historical influences.

A Community Bulletin Board
Learners and teachers alike use the Classroom Forum anytime as their online community bulletin board. Teachers love posting lesson openers, polls, links to external resources, and more. And students can comment, exchange GIFS, and upload audio, videos, and photos.
Learning to hold a conversation
Mock conversations with pre-recorded conversation prompts challenge your learners to hone their conversational skills. Learners record themselves replying to comments and questions, and the recorded conversations can be added to their portfolio as an artifact.
Tracking Their Own Progress
Online student portfolios follow learners from unit to unit, level to level. Students can upload evidence of what they can do in the language - activities, quizzes, audio files, PowerPoint and Word files, and more. This allows them to set goals and reflect on their progress related to Can-Do Statements.
Efficient, Integrated Grading
Use the online calendar to remind students of upcoming assignments and deadlines, assign tasks to specific learners or an entire class, and more. Explorer® lets you know when your students complete their work and alerts students as soon as you’ve graded. Grade each quiz question response without opening each question in Explorer®. Automatic grading is available where appropriate.
