AbstractThis paper examines the Direct Method of language instruction and how it has been implemented in Latin pedagogy. It shows that the method has been used in Latin instruction throughout history and that it has been proven as an effective method. A section of textbook reviews also shows how the Direct Method has evolved and is used today in the classroom. Further, a study was conducted where direct methodology was used in a classroom setting which showed it as an effective means of instruction.
