Summer Latin Composition Course

Latin Composition Course:

(7th-12th grade): July 5 - July 28, 2011. One-hour class every Tuesday and Thursday evening.

Instructor: Alecia Rolling. This course is open to Latin I and Latin II students of all ages who wish to work on Latin composition. This is a writing intensive course that will require each student to compose approximately 50 words of Latin per week. We will meet every Tuesday and Thursday in the evening (time to be announced soon) for one hour to discuss difficult grammar issues and composition questions. We will look at ancient, medieval, and modern Latin writers to use as our models, and we will do our best to imitate these models as we compose our own Latin. Outside of class, students will be required to write several short compositions during the week which will be graded by the instructor before the next class so as to allow plenty of time for improvement. Email or Mrs. Rolling directly at for more information.
