Homework: Aenead Background Collaboration (due 3/1)

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!

UPDATE: Complete Translations of CH 22 and 23, Wrap Up Caesar

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.

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.
