de bello Gallico

AP Latin Summer Assignment, including a fabulous checklist!
Salvete, omnes!
Working diligently in this course will prepare you for the difficult three-hour exam, which you will take
on Friday, May 13, 2016 at noon. The fee is $91, and financial assistance is available to those who
qualify. Doing well on the exam counts for credit at some colleges, potentially saving you thousands of
dollars in tuition.
Doing some work over the summer will save you pain and frustration during the school year. My goal is
to be done with the entire syllabus by April vacation that begins after school on Friday, April 15, so that
we may spend the remainder of our time (1 week of vacation and 3 weeks of school), reviewing and
practicing for the exam.

Optional enriching activities
Read Ursula K. Le Guin’s novel Lavinia (2009). Check it out from the library or purchase it. I
downloaded a Kindle copy.
Read the entire Aeneid in translation. The Mandelbaum and Fitzgerald translations are good
