Course Description

        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

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 thirty 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 


        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.
