Purpose of the Course
In your third year of Latin, the focus of study shifts from primarily grammar acquisition and
usage to reading adapted and/or annotated Latin authors. You will still have regular grammar
practice to review concepts and strengthen your skills, but the emphasis is on learning to read
Latin prose and poetry for meaning and discussion.
This means that the course will become somewhat more like an English or history class, in which
the reading provokes conversation about language expression and the larger issues of Roman life
and culture.
What You Will Read
The third year is the equivalent of a buffet: you “taste” different authors and see a wide range of
styles and subject matter. There is no particular agenda to the readings except to expose you to
authors from a variety of times and with varying points of view on the experience of Roman life.
These authors can include Caesar, Cicero, Livy, Cornelius Nepos, Petronius, Horace, Octavian
1
You will also be receiving handouts for various other authors, including Cicero, Caesar, and
some late writers less well known.
2
(later Augustus), Catullus, Vergil, Perpetua and other late-empire writers, and Pliny. This
sampling will give you a background with which to work if you decide to take the AP Latin
course next year.
In order to provide context and background, we will be supplementing the Latin translations with
readings from a history text (in English) and a novel (in English). Seeing “the bigger picture” is
always useful when trying to understand any author, Roman or otherwise.
Daily Activities and Class Preparation
We will be doing a variety of activities in class: translations, grammar exercises, discussions,
and simulations. The anchor of the class, however, is increased facility with the Latin language,
and other activities will depend on how adept you become at the language. Thus, daily
preparation is essential not only to your progress but to your enjoyment of the class.
This preparation is especially important because in the second semester I will be introducing the
specific skill of sight-reading, which is translation from a “clean” version (no notes or
vocabulary) of a text with no previous preparation. As this is a high-level task that requires a
great deal of practice, these sessions will begin small and gradually increase in amount over
time. The objective is to have you familiarize yourself with sight-reading techniques and gain
confidence in your ability to read unseen Latin. Reading at sight successfully, however, requires
the synthesis of all your previous learning, and so the accumulation of daily habits pays off in
sight translation.
Grading
A. Running Average
I calculate your running average based on a point system:
HW: ~10-30 points
Quizzes: ~30-50 points
Tests: ~50-150 points
Other activities: ~40-150 points depending on the size and complexity of the task
The average is points earned/points possible
You average will “start over” at the second semester and is not cumulative
B. Semester and Year Grades
1st semester grade = semester grade (85%) + semester final (15%)
2nd semester grade = final average (no exam)
Year grade = sem. 1 (40%) + sem. 2 (40%) + final (20%)
3
C. Late work
Assignments of less than 30 points will receive half credit up to the end of the semester in which
they were assigned.
Assignments of more than 30 points will receive 10% less credit every day for the first five days,
and after five days will not be accepted; the student will receive a zero for that assignment.
D. Collaboration on Homework
Since I oversee classwork and can monitor student interaction, students may work together in
class. Since, however, homework is graded on a good faith basis and is intended as a way for me
to assess the individual student’s progress, homework assignments may NOT be collaborative.
Receiving help on homework defeats the purpose of the assignment and thus will be considered
unauthorized aid.
E. Use of “Trots”
Translations of Latin texts are widely available, both in print and on line. Since homework is
based on “good faith” effort and we will go over all translations in class, students MAY NOT use
outside (including other students’) translations. Use of such translations (known as “trots”) will
be considered an instance of academic dishonesty.
“Office Hours”
I am available during the after-school help periods, B and E periods, and Arts/Labs. I teach one
class in the middle school, so you want to schedule appointments in advance as much as possible
because I’ll be traveling between the two campuses and not always available at the last minute,
even during scheduled help times like after school.
