Summer Latin Institute - Day 50

Today is Day 50. The 49 instructional days are past. The day of celebration is past. It's final exam day. A passage from Vergil's Aeneid to translate at sight (glossed), with questions about syntax, scansion, and poetic interpretation. An Ode of Horace to translate at sight (glossed), with a similar range of questions to answer. A passage from each student's elective to translate, something they've seen before, with a prompt for writing an essay about the language and meaning of the passage.

Once exams are completed and handed in, the faculty will grade them as a team. That will be the first step in assigning course grades and honors.

Tomorrow, student will come back in the morning to get their final grades, course grades, commemorative tee-shirts (of their own design), and to bid their teachers farewell—in whatever spirit of fondness or recrimination they feel is suitable!

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...
