     -Adjectives with the three gender endings


B. Notes should include

     -Every word that would be unusual for a Latin C student

     -Every reference to a person or place should be explained.

     -Every idiomatic expression or difficult construction that needs explanation should be explained.


You are going to e-mail to thayes@3Villagecsd.org the following

AP Vergil redos up to line 150.

Download a copy of the quiz lines.

Identify the form of the last two “terminated” words.  If you will not reach twenty before the end of the lines (i.e. there are less than 10 lines), do the last three until you reach twenty.

Identify one non oral literary device. And explain.


Newspaper project. Due Friday, October 28rd. 

You are to choose a book of the Aeneid and write a series of articles (editorials, ads, editorial comics--whatever you would expect to find in a newspaper) which refer to the happenings within that book. The omniscient editor can pretend that all the various events happned on one day, or during the last week, but it should be seen as "late-breaking news." Your productions should be posted an a poster board designed to mimic the front page of a newspaper (could be the NYT, Newsday, or the National Enquirer). While the display is not the main point, the page should be attractive with pictures and/or creative use of fonts.

Thursday, September 16

Discuss the "epic of Roman history"

Cut and paste the paragraph below onto a separate sheet and translate as much as you can.  Bring it into class tomoorw.


Liber I:
Propositione et invocatione praemissis, narratio incipit a septimo Aeneae expeditionis anno, quo tempore, Troianis e Sicilia in Italiam solventibus, Iuno tempestatem excitat conciliato sibi Aeolo. Sedat tempestatem Neptunus. Naves Aeneae septem in portum Africae se recipiunt, reliquis alio disiectis. Venus apud Iovem de filii calamatate queritur. Solatur eam Iupiter, exposita Aeneae eiusque posteritatis futura felicitate. Mittitur Mercurius, qui Carthaginensium animos Troianis placabiles reddat. Venus habitu venatricis occurrit Aeneae, regionem cum Achate exploranti. Indicataque Didonis ac regionis conditione, utrumque nebula septum Carthaginem dimittit.  Illic Aeneas, templum ingressus, primum in belli Troiani picturas incidit, deinde in Didonem, et in socios, quos fluctibus oppressos putaverat, Didone supplicantes. Dat se in conspectum Aeneas. A Regina benigne excipitur. Accersitur per Achatem Ascanius, cuius in locum dolo Veneris Cupido substituitur, ut Aeneae amorem Didone inspiret. Abeunt omnes in aulam ad convivium. (verba 135)


AP Class 2010-11


If you want to do any review work, I have two suggestions for books:

Review and Test Preparation for the Imtermediate Latin Student, by Sally Davis

(published by Addison Wesley)


Excelability in Advanced Latin, A Workbook for Students, by Marianthe Colakis

(published by Bolchazy-Carducci)

The first is a review of all the grammar you should know at this point, the second helps you become familiar with reading authentic Latin carefully.


Remember, you will be responsible for reading all of the Aeneid in English, so if you want to get started over the summer, that's a great idea.  There are many fine translations.  You may find that one in prose is more understandable than one in poetry, but some of the poetry editions in the last twnty years and very good as well.


There is a substantial amount of vaculary that you will need to be familiar with.  you would do well to go to the bottom of this page and juststart working on the exercises named A Song of War, Pharr, or just the Aeneid.


Have a great a summer!
