Latin III provides a deeper study of the Latin language and Roman culture. Students read stories which follow a Roman family and their lives during the imperial era in the city of Rome. Through these stories, students learn about many topics such as daily Roman life, Roman food and social gatherings, the lives of women, crime and living conditions in Rome, letter writing, and Roman education. Students continue their study of mythology by reading stories about mythic journeys, including Orpheus’ journey to the Underworld and Aeneas’ journey to Italy. Students will also deepen their understanding of Roman history by studying the collapse of Roman Republic, Julius Caesar, and Augustus.
Course Expectations and Assessments
Homework is an essential part of learning Latin. Homework provides an opportunity for you to practice independently what students have learned in class, to extend learning beyond the classroom, and to help students prepare for upcoming lessons and discussions. Homework WILL be collected, checked, and graded as part of their support grade.
Students may retake primary assessments within ONE WEEK of receiving a grade on the original assessment. In order to be eligible for a retake, students must complete a Retake/Test Corrections Form. Students may NOT retake benchmark assessments.
All work your student completes in this class must be original. This means not copying work or answers from another source (including Google Translate), another person (unless working together in a group), or submitting work that was previously completed for another class. Any work found to be NOT original will receive a 0% and may be reported to administration.
