It’s that time of year – graduation!
So, as a parting gift, I am going to exempt you from the test on Capitulum XVIII on Friday. Instead, you should focus on studying for your final, which is going to be given to you on that same day.
To prepare, look over the study guide I gave you. The questions on the study guide are what we cover for the Final. There are 50 questions, multiple choice, for your final. The final is focusing on capitula VIII to XV. Look over the exercitia from your workbook.
Today we will review Pensum A from Capitulum XVIII – this is the basis for your test on Friday, 5/17. This is the last test you will have for this quarter, so it is important that you pay extra attention and focus to it. Focus on the formation of adverbs from adjectives, and how we use the three degrees of adverbs (Positive, Comparative, Superlative).
Seniors – you will be exempt from this test (as a little parting gift!).
Your last quiz for the quarter is going to be on Wednesday, 5/15. You will need to show that you know how to form an adverb and how to use it. Make sure you complete Pensum A for HW as that will give you some extra practice to prepare you.
Remember to complete your homework tonight – complete Pensum A and demonstrate your understanding for using Adverbs in all three degrees. It is due on 5/15 and you will have a test, based on this assignment on 5/17.
That will be your last test for the quarter. After that, we focus on getting ready for the Final on 6/4.

If you didn’t do so hot on your test for Capitulum XVII, which tested your ability to use the Passive voice in Latin, there is a chance for you to improve your grade. However, it is not without risk.
You must first redo Pensum A from Capitulum XVII. When you turn it in, and it MUST be complete by the time you walk into class on Friday, it will be graded by me. Whatever your score is becomes your test grade. Nota bene: if you do WORSE, that will be your grade!
So, if you feel comfortable with your test score, then you don’t need to reattempt it. If you feel like you can improve your test grade, take a shot at it and complete the assignment. But yes, it is a gamble! And I am not going to show you the mistakes you made on the test until Friday!
