PREREQUISITE: A MINIMUM GRADE OF C- IN LATIN 2
This course is for students who have completed Latin 2. Students will build vocabulary and review syntax within the framework of reading specific authors. The first author read is Petronius, who introduces students to the culture of the wealthy freedmen of the early Empire. Students also read from Cicero, who introduces them to the political upheavals of the last days of the Republic. A close study of Cicero’s Latin deepens an appreciation of his style and its influence on America’s rhetoric. Translation homework will be assigned daily. Quizzes will be given on vocabulary, translation, syntactical analysis and political background. Oral reading of Latin will become increasingly important. Students will demonstrate their comprehension of the authors read through translations, essays on assigned topics, as well as posters, poems, videos and other projects.Honors Option: Students electing the Latin 3 honors option will be expected to undertake a deeper analysis of the relationship between the structure of the language and the author’s literary purpose.
