High School Latin II Competency

Offered to Grades 9-12
1 credit (PeakPlatform)

Prerequisite: High School Latin I Competency

Students continue with their study from High School Latin II Competency through ancient, time-honored classical language approaches which include repetition, parsing, written composition, and listening exercises. These techniques, combined with a modern multimedia approach to learning grammar, syntax, and vocabulary, prepare students for a deeper study of Latin.

Each unit consists of a new vocabulary theme and grammar concept, reading comprehension activities, writing activities, multimedia culture, history, and mythology presentations, and interactive activities and practices which reinforce vocabulary and grammar. There is a strong emphasis on engaging with authentic classical Latin through weekly encounters with ancient passages from such prestigious authors as Virgil, Ovid, and Lucretius. Students will learn ancient high classical styles of pronunciation and grammar in lieu of generally less sophisticated medieval styles, making it possible for students to comprehend the most Latin from the widest range of time periods.

In this course, students will:

  • Be actively engaged in their own language learning
  • Understand common vocabulary terms and phrases
  • Comprehend a wide range of grammar patterns
  • Use a wide range of grammar patterns in their speaking and writing
  • Understand and analyze the cultural and historical contexts of the ancient sources they study
  • Take frequent assessments where their language progression can be monitored
