My current plan:
I'm about to start teaching my two boys, 9 and 12. Not with Wheelock, though! Well, the 12-year-old could probably handle it, but I wanted to see if I could find an approach that would work with both of them, at least initially. So, this first year, I'm doing "Latin Lite": we'll be going through the Minimus
books and maybe some other material, as well as concurrently working through English from the Roots Up
to get them familiar with more Greek and Latin vocabulary and English roots.
The goal of this year being a basic familiarity with simple Latin, some vocabulary, and nailing down any missing pieces of English grammar that have fallen through the cracks. Next year I'll proceed with a more "real" Latin curriculum, at least for the older boy. This could be Wheelock, but perhaps something like Lingva Latina
(Orberg; an immersion reading sort of approach) could be used with both boys successfully. I'll see how this year pans out before making any bigger plans!
