Course Description

Prerequisites: Lat 312K with grade of at least C. Recommended: LAT 323. This course is designed for students seeking teaching certification in Latin, classics majors, and others with a serious interest in the Latin Language. Our principal aims are to review, refine, and practice our knowledge of Latin grammar and syntax, and to gain a clearer understanding of Latin semantics and prose style. Our primary means to these ends will be the translation of sentences and paragraphs from English into Latin and stylistic analysis of selected passages of Latin prose. An important supplement to our work in composition will be exercises in spoken Latin, designed to reinforce our knowledge of grammar, enhance our appreciation of the sound of Latin literature, and prepare future teachers of Latin with oral drills useful in the classroom. Grading: Two midterm exams: 15% each Daily written assignments: 20% Class participation (includes attendance, preparation, contributions to class discussions, and oral presentations): 20% Final exam: 30% Texts: M. A. North and A. E. Hillard, Latin Prose Composition. Focus Publishing: ISBN 0-941051-91-9 Course packet
