Henle Latin III: Cicero

Description: This class covers the Third Year Henle Text and builds on the grammar and vocabulary students learned in the Caesar translation class. This class explores the oratory of Marcus Tullius Cicero. All readings come from the Henle text, but without modification or simplification. Students will examine the basic elements of Roman oratory during this period, as well as read selections from Cicero’s oratory against Cataline and the impeachment of Gaius Verres. Students will review grammar and cover advanced grammatical concepts, such as irregular adjectives, ablative absolutes, gerunds, gerundives, vocative case, and imperative mood. Consistent review is employed throughout. The grade is based upon weekly grammar/vocabulary quizzes, translation quizzes, participation, and a final exam.

Grade Level: 9-12 (ages 14-18)

Prerequisites: Students must have completed the Henle First Year Text (or First through Fourth Form texts), or the equivalent of the entire first year Latin grammar in another program. Students must have also completed Henle Latin II: Caesar or another basic translation class. It is assumed that students have a strong background in Latin grammar, and are familiar with purpose clauses, result clauses, and the subjunctive. 

Required Materials: Henle Latin III Text, Henle Latin III Key, and Henle Latin Grammar (used in all four years). Students will also need a USB headset microphone (built-in microphones also work).
