Latin 2 is a reading based exploration of Latin grammar. Students will read stories about three major heroes while learning the remaining grammar points from Latin I. Students are expected to have completed a Latin I course and to know the following grammar points: the five declensions; the six tenses in the active voice for the four conjugations and irregular verbs; first, second and third declension adjectives and adverbs; and the demonstrative pronouns hic, ille, and is. The three main goals for the course are: learning the grammar of Latin II, learning the vocabulary of Latin II, and continuing to explore the culture and history of the Romans through research, projects, and discussions. The first two goals will enable students to read complex Latin stories, which will use such Latin grammar points as participles, the passive voice, comparative and superlative adjectives, and the subjunctive mood. The third goal will further their pursuit of the amazing world of the Romans and its impact on today's world.
