General Course Information and Notes
Latin 5 expands the skills acquired by students in Latin 4. Specific content includes, but is not limited to, expansion of vocabulary and translation skills through comprehension of selected readings. Vocabulary and grammar stress activities which are important to authors such as Caesar, Cicero, Plautus, Ovid, Catullus, Horace, Pliny, Sallust, Juvenal and Vergil. In presentational speaking, Latin students will present projects and reports of the research they have done about the culture, arts, history, politics, literature and mythology of the target language in English. For presentational writing, students will write essays of literary criticism to prepare for those expected in Advanced Placement and college classes.
Special Note: Latin students will focus more on reading and interpreting written passages rather than using oral modes of communication.
