Latin III

Course Objective

Latin III class is designed to increase vocabulary and assist students in completion of the corpus of grammar required to read many authentic Latin writings. Through authentic writings as well as stories in the Ecce Romani text, students will increase their understanding of the culture of the Roman world. By listening to poetry and narratives on the Internet, writing from dictations on the Internet and responding to oral stimuli in Latin, students will also develop aural/oral skills which will be a useful carryover to modern language study.

Latin III students will:
  • have a thorough review of the materials covered in Latin I and II.
  • receive an agenda for the academic year
  • access daily lessons via the Internet
  • access oral readings via the Internet
  • access video clips from the Internet
  • contact the teacher or tutors on assigned days via a toll free number
  • complete assignments, quizzes and tests according to the schedule
  • use the Ecce Romani series
  • download the works of the ancients from the Internet
  • increase their abilities to work on the Internet

Schedule

The Latin III class is a student directed class taught via Internet which will augment the student's grammar and vocabulary skills, increase reading proficiency through cultural and historical presentations and student participation via phone and the Internet.
