A textbook will be provided for each student. Knowledge of Roman geography, history, daily life, and mythology will be enhanced through English or Latin readings and activities. The Latin meanings of certain common abbreviations and phrases used in English, such as e.g., A.D., et al., ad hoc, status quo, and tempus fugit, will be featured weekly.
