Latin 3 H students will complete their study of Latin grammar and begin to read Latin literature. They will use the third volume of the series, The Oxford Latin Course Part III as their basic text. In this year the stories revolve around the main character of Horace, the poet, and his success during the Augustan Age. Some poems by Horace are presented to the student for translation and analysis. In addition to the textbook work, the students are expected to research several topics on either history or culture during the year. Assessments will be made through tests, projects, quizzes and homework. The major goal of this course is to provide the student with the skills necessary to translate, interpret, and analyze actual Latin. After completing this year the student will be prepared to read other famous authors either at the high school or college level.
