Summer Latin Institute - DAY 16

DAY 16 was yesterday, July 2, 2012.

On Sunday, July 1, I led the optional Sunday exam review from 2-4 p.m.

Yesterday, our students took their third exam from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

After lunch, I taught Unit 13: Indefinite pronouns and adjectives; dative with intransitive verbs; dative with compounds; fīō; and the numerical adjective duo, duae, duo.

After the grammar lecture, my colleague Patrick taught two Catullus poems, Poems 8 (Quem basiabis?) and 85 (Odi et amo).

Regular readers will note that I did not post blogs about the weekend this past weekend. That reflects the extent to which the program is becoming more routine for me, and my weekends are becoming more about myself, my husband, my home, my regular, non-Institute life. Jason and I had a great weekend, seeing Shakespeare in the Park (As You Like It) on Friday night, doing all sorts of brunch and crosswords and window shopping (Ikea) and actual shopping (Fairway) on Saturday. Jason went to karate class on Sunday and worked on his dissertation at the Graduate Center, while I covered the optional exam review. In the evening, we ordered in pizza from the local gourmet pizza joint, Nice (that's "Nice," the French town, not "nice," the English adjective).

And of course, as some of you may be aware, I started my new feature on Pedagogishness, Hot Latin for Guys and Guys.

More soon...
