BHS Honors Latin 3
salvēte omnēs! 


Students begin the year with a comprehensive review of Latin II grammar and vocabulary followed by a further building of vocabulary and a further mastery of the more sophisticated elements of Latin grammar. This is approached through continued readings that deal with Roman history, society and mythology in the target language. Much of this course functions in the same way as an English literature class. A variety of authors are read, including Ovid, Catullus, and Pliny the Younger, while historical backgrounds are studied.  Desired outcomes for this course include a student improving their ability both to produce fluent English translations or summaries of Latin stories and a student honing their ability to write and translate from English to Latin with more ease and confidence.
