AP Latin

Credits: 1

The AP Latin course is designed to help students achieve success on the AP Latin exam. Therefore, it centers on the prose of Caesar (Commentarii De Bello Gallico) and the poetry of Vergil (The Aeneid), while developing the students’ abilities to translate Latin prose and poetry into English literally; understand the passages read within their historical, cultural, and literary contexts; engage in effective analysis of passages, including elements of language, style, and purpose; better read works of Latin aloud; and learn the dactylic hexameter of Vergil’s poetry.

 

Prerequisites: Latin I and Latin II
Students must take Latin Prose and AP Latin during the same academic year.
