LATIN 002- Online

Dr. Brian T. Walsh (Classics Department) LAT 002: Latin 002 is the second half of Elementary Latin, and it covers the last declension (the 5th), the Verbals (participles, gerunds and gerundives, supines), Subjunctive mood and Subjunctive clauses. Students will begin to read and translate connected passages of Latin prose as well. The course is tied in to the textbook Wheelocks Latin (chapters 21-40), though most of the actual assignments (called Modules) are posted online in BlackBoard. Here is an approximate schedule of the course, followed by further guidelines and expectations: Schedule of Assignments: June 17 July 12 Monday Tuesday Wednesday 6-17 6-18 6-19 Intro.

Office hours (online): 10-11 am (MON to FRI); 9-9:30 pm (MON to FRI) ** PLUS numerous other times throughout the day and evening (depending upon needs of the group.)

General Guidelines: Shape of the Course ** Chapters 21-40 of Wheelock's Latin are covered in LAT 002 (chs. 1-20 having been covered in LAT 001) 1) A full semester of college Latin is squeezed into 20 class days, which makes things significantly more intensive than they would be in the usual 3.5 month format.

2) The material is shaped into 'Modules' that are based upon Wheelock's Latin (6th ed. rev.), generally one Module for each chapter. 3) Each day's materials are found under COURSE MATERIALS in a FOLDER entitled "Module # and Materials". Suggested Order of Work Read the pertinent chapter in Wheelock (either online or in print) Open and complete the Module (usually 3-4 sections) Review forms and Vocabulary with the Flashcards and/or Audio Materials Write your forms and paradigms on paper. Recite things along with the Audio Mp3 (where applicable) Student Expectations & Grading 4) A conscientious student should plan on at least 2 hours per class-day to complete the Modules and Materials (Audio, Flashcards, Texts, Videos, etc.) 5) Grading is based largely upon the following: (1) the consistent quality of work in the Modules (2) 2 Tests, the first covering Modules 1-10 and the second Modules 11-20 6) Modules are to be completed and submitted on the date on which they are listed (above). Please send a MESSAGE if you are having trouble keeping the pace or if there some other impediment to your finishing things on time. 7) Modules are graded on a combination of completeness and a reasonable amount of correctness. Modules which are insufficiently complete or of uniformly poor quality will be returned to the student for further corrections. Upon resubmission, full credit will be given. Materials & Support 8) In addition to the daily 'Module' supporting materials may include any of the following: (1) Audio Mp3 files for Conjugations and Declensions, (2) Video instructions (for select materials), (3) Powerpoint materials (4) Flashcards, (5) Texts with Illustrations 9) Online Office hours (at least 1 hour per day online during the week, to be determined by the needs of the group). 10) Corrected Modules and Tests are usually returned on the next classday. Communication: Internal MESSAGES 11) Communication should be largely by the INTERNAL EMAIL found under the MESSAGES icon (on the left-hand menu) of the Course Homepage.

12) Please ask a lot of questions, so that I know both that you are engaged and that this material causes you to think! Good luck and enjoy!!! Magister
