Latin Levels 5-6 & 7-8 will be concentrating on Latin poetry this year (2008-2009). We will be continuing our focus on Roman heritage through some of the greatest poets: Martial, Vergil, Ovid, Horace & Catullus. As we will not be using a standard text but handouts and the Internet, it is imperative that all students have a Latin-English dictionary, access to the Internet, and a binder to keep all of the paperwork in.
Bona Fortuna!
