Latin students complete their study of Latin grammar in Latin 3, which is an impressive accomplishment! Students will study gerunds, gerundives, participles, deponent verbs, conditional sentences, and the subjunctive mood. Students will also examine Latin poetry, which is beautiful in and of itself, but also helpful preparation for the AP Latin exam. Students will become more confident in their translation skills while exploring Roman culture and studying people and practices from antiquity by reading passages in both Latin and English. Students will be encouraged to see elements of Latin and Roman civilization throughout the world today, inspiring them to integrate Latin with their literature and history lessons. Beginning with the 2021-22 school year, the spring semester readings and translation exercises have been augmented with the goal of preparing students for success in AP Latin in the following school year. With these changes, the course now bears the “honors” designation.
The course price includes registration, study sessions, administration, and medal/certificate distribution for the National Classical Etymology Exam, National Latin Vocabulary Exam, and the National Latin Exam.
