Course Description

        Latin V introduces students to reading actual, authentic Roman texts.  In this course, students will read a selection of both historical and fictional works created during the golden and silver ages of Roman literature.  Students will analyze and interpret these texts based on their knowledge of the history of the time period.  There will be opportunities in class activities and projects for students to connect themes and messages in these works to our lives today.

Course Expectations and Assessments

Course Policies 

        Homework is an essential part of learning Latin.  Homework provides an opportunity for practice and prepares students for class.  Homework is not graded but is checked.  If a homework assignment takes students more than forty minutes, they may stop there.

        Students may retake assessments.  At times, there will be opportunities in class to make up or retake assessments.  Other times, students will need to schedule a time outside of class.

Required and Recommended Materials 

Assistance

        Students can always either email me or come up to me to ask for extra help.  I can meet with students before school, during lunch, or after school.
