* Website
There is currently no teacher website for this course.
* Description
Latin II continues the elementary course begun in Latin I, covering the last twenty chapters of Wheelock's Latin Grammar. By the end of the course, students have encountered representative passages of a variety of prose and poetry, and are prepared to continue with a wide range of material.
* Meetings
This course meets 2 times per week for discussion and review of assigned homework.
* Homework
The course is a recitation course, requiring constant participation by the students. We work on form mastery, translation from Latin into English and from English into Latin. The amount of time this will require for a given student will vary considerably, but it would be reasonable to expect it to require about an hour a day outside of class.
* Prerequisites
Latin I
Admission to Latin II is automatic for those who have finished Latin I, but open to outside applicants only with instructor approval. We do not require or expect Greek, though some familiarity with Greek is always beneficial.
* Recommended background
Latin II presupposes Scholars Online Latin I or the equivalent. If you have covered the first twenty chapters of Wheelock or the equivalent, contact one of the instructors for verification that this course will work for you.
