AP Latin Prep

his class is designed for students who have completed a full course of Latin study, the equivalent of CLRC Latin 3, using texts such as The Oxford Latin Course, Wheelock’s Latin, The Cambridge Latin Course, Lingua Latina, or Latin for the New Millennium and plan to take an AP Latin class in Fall 2022.

It is designed as a first step into reading authentic Latin texts to give students an opportunity to develop their translation skills before beginning an AP Latin class.

We will read as far as we can in Book 2 of Vergil’s Aeneid. The pace will depend on the students who enroll but is expected to be 20-30 lines per class. We will move slowly and emphasize both literal translation and appreciation for the beauty of Vergil’s poetry.

Materials will be provided by the Instructor.
