Please review more extensive materials at the teacher's Latin III website.
An intermediate reading course, made up predominantly of prose readings from Republican Roman historical sources. It will also involve a systematic exposure to the early course of Roman history.
This course meets 2 times per week for discussion and review of assigned homework.
Latin III will offer a regular course of readings from the text anthology focusing primarily on Republican Rome, regular reading in the history texts, and vocabulary and grammar quizzing and review. A student should normally expect to spend an hour to an hour and a half outside class each day in preparation: half an hour to an hour of translation, fifteen minutes of vocabulary drill, and fifteen minutes of reading in the historical material. The amount of time required will vary with the student's flexibility with translating.
Latin II or equivalent.
Any previous historical reading in Roman history will be helpful, and any complete elementary course sequence (Wheelock, Henle, Oxford, Cambridge, or others) should suffice as preparation for the grammatical part of the course.
