Docs for Key Figures and Other Grammatical Points of Interest for the Aenead

In order to help you guys study, and build up your background information on the Aenead, I am going to start a few Docs in our group on Amicitia to aid you. There will be a doc for the following topics:

  • Key Figures from the Aenead and Mythology
  • Versification
  • Figures of Syntax and Rhetoric

Don’t neglect these docs. I expect that you will contribute also and, while you are in class, if you have a note to contribute go right ahead and do so! The more you contribute, the more you will know!

Updated Pacing Guide for the Rest of the Year 2013

Here is an updated pacing guide for the rest of our readings for the remainder of the year in AP Latin.

We won’t have time to completely read all of the Latin selections from Vergil’s Aenead so we will have to skip around. Also, we are going to be having regular “tests” every other class and short analysis questions for homework. There will be occasional quizzes given on grammatical points but those we will get to once we review the appropriate forms.

Complete Chapter 1, Prep Chapter 2

Make sure that you have completed your multiple choice work for Chapter 1 and that you have the prep questions for Chapter 2 completed by our next class on 9/28.

You should also have a translation ready of all of the text for Book 1.2-3. We are going to move through these books much more quickly so we can have enough room for Vergil at the end of the year.
