Summer Latin Institute - DAY 31

Day 31 was Tuesday, July 24, 2012.

Oh, my...I let a whole day go by without a post. Shame on me. OK, here goes, but it'll have to be a quick one.

Patrick, 8:30 a.m. optional. Questions about the previous night's Sallust and St. Augustine assignments. Akiva, first hour of morning drill, Sallust's Bellum Catalinae, sections 1-3-ish. Michael (me), second hour of morning drill, Sallust's Bellum Catalinae, from where Akiva left off to the middle of section 5. Akiva, lunchtime optional sight reading, another selection from the works of Tacitus. Afternoon prose comp, Michael, focusing on the "too big too fail" construction (comparative adjective + quam ut + subjunctive). Patrick, afternoon assigned reading, selections from the Confessions of St. Augustine. Michael, afternoon optional sight reading, Vergil's first Eclogue.

A lot for one day, wouldn't you say? Wouldn't you agree that our students study at least one week of traditional Latin in one day of the Summer Latin Institute?

Does all of this sound too good to be true? Tell your friends. Tell your students. Just think—You could be doing this next summer!

More soon...
