Middle School Greek III
Middle School Greek 3 is a transition course to prepare younger students, or those who want a slower pace, to enter CLRC’s high school level Greek 2 course the following year. The class covers the same material as the first semester of Greek 2 in the high school program —chapters 11-15 of Athenaze: An Introduction to Ancient Greek Book I. Topics covered in the class include the first and second aorist, the imperfect, and -o contract verbs. Relative clauses, comparative and superlative adjectives and adverbs, and demonstrative adjectives are also covered.
Middle School Greek 3 is the next step for students who have completed either CLRC Middle School Greek 2 or High School Greek 1. It is also a good beginning point for students who have had some experience with Greek but may not be quite ready to jump into the faster pace of the full high-school level Greek 2 class.
Students who are unsure of the best class choice should contact Anne Van Fossen, M.A. to discuss the best placement.
Fall 2020 Registration for this Course Opens on February 27.
Minimum Enrollment: 3
Maximum Enrollment: 10
