This course is the culmination of the students’ previous years of study. They will learn to translate, analyze, and respond to prose and poetry as mature Latin readers through the in-depth study of Caesar’s Bellum Gallicum and Vergil’s Aeneid. They practice translating Latin at sight and scanning dactylic hexameter. In preparation for the AP Exam, students in this section also write analytical essays on passages from Caesar and Vergil.
