• Syllabus                                            Latin III                                 Term 1

    Course Description:

              The study of Latin today is primarily designed to lead the student to a more effective use of the English language.  Latin teaches Latin syntax as a means of producing skill in translation of classical Latin and as a reinforcing agent in the understanding of English syntax.  Since the English language was strongly influenced by Latin as English was developing, the rules of English are traditionally taught as if English were Latin.  In the same way, the study of Latin vocabulary facilitates mastery of English vocabulary and vastly increases a student’s word power. An analysis of English vocabulary reveals words that have come into the language from Latin without change, often having the same meaning.  The year’s work covers basic Latin grammatical constructions with emphasis on declensions, conjugations, and the formation and use of adjectives and adverbs.  During the course of the year, the students will read the story of Ulysses in Latin.

    Latin II Objectives:

    ·         Review the process of declining Nouns of all declensions.

    ·         Review conjugation of verbs, active and passive

    ·         Identify  English derivatives of Latin vocabulary

    ·         Learn identification and rules of all verb conjugations.

    ·         Translation of the story of ULYSSES and memorization of the accompanying vocabulary

    Latin II:  Tests and Grades:

              Vocabulary tests will be given on the second class day following the introduction of a new vocabulary in a given chapter.  Chapter tests will be given the day following chapter review day.  Generally, three or four days are allotted to a chapter during the first quarter.

    Latin II:  Retesting:       Retesting is mandatory (from the Latin mando, mandare – to command) for test scores lower that 70.  Other students with test grades between 70 and 85 may request a retest.  A period of 2 days will be given to reteaching before a retest will be given.

    Latin II: Homework/Assignments/Projects:

           All work is expected to be completed in class; students who need more time will take assignments home.  Students absent are required to request make-up work and the END of the class period of the day they return to school.  Students will have 3 days to complete and turn in make-up work.  Assignments are not given out prior to anticipated missed days.
