For tonight’s homework, I want you all to do a little preliminary research on who Vergil was and what this poem the Aenead was all about. To do that, I want you all to collaborate on a doc in our discussion group on Amicitia – just edit the areas with the information you want to contribute. To do that, just head on over to the doc by following this link. Looking forward to what you are writing!
We are about to complete Caesar’s Gallic Wars and will do so next class (CH 22-23, or Book VI.14-18). Have your translations ready. We are going to be leaving the world of Caesar and entering the epic world of Vergil’s Aenead.
Make sure you are regularly reviewing the vocabulary from De Bello Gallico. We are now going to look at poetry, as opposed to prose, and will need to examine the nature of poetry as a literary device.
For tonight, make sure you complete your translation of Chapter 9 from Caesar’s Gallic Wars (IV.34-36.1) found in your workbook. It is due by next class, 2/27.
Tonight make sure you complete your online quiz via the discussion group on Amicitia. You are to choose 5 of the participles and supply your translation. Bonam fortunam!
I know, it is a lot of work – but we have to make up for lost time.
Make sure you complete the short analysis questions for both Chapter 8 (p. 72) and Chapter 9 (p. 79) from your Caesar workbook. Oscula!!!
Remember to complete your online quiz for the Present System Passive Voice in our on discussion group on Amicitia. It is now due 2/8.
Make sure you complete the Short Analysis questions for CH 8 reading by dies Lunae 2/4.
Make sure you complete your quiz via the group discussion on Amicitia – choose only 5 questions to complete. Your quiz is due posted online by 2/4.
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.

Remember to bring a gift for the auction, as well as some food and drinks for our Saturnalia party on Thursday 12/20! Also don’t forget to bring a pilleus (otherwise known as a “Santa” hat)! We are going to be singing carols in Latin!!
