In Latin II, students will continue their vocabulary and grammar instruction from Latin I. We will build upon nouns and adjectives by adding adjective degrees and new uses for noun cases. We will take knowledge of verbs and conjugation and apply this to learning about the passive voice of verbs. We will also begin looking at some more complicated sentence constructions such as indirect statement and relative clause and see how they are used in context. Emphasis will be on reading, with Cambridge Latin Course Units II and III as our primary resources.
We will also continue cultural studies begun in Latin I. The focus will be on the Roman colonies in Britain and Egypt, with special focus on military installations and the cities of Alexandria and Aquae Sulis (modern day Bath, England). There will also be lessons on Roman history and the relevant myths and legends surrounding these locations.
Your grade will be mostly based on the following things: exams; quizzes; and homework.

Once per quarter, a student may be late turning in an assignment; they may turn it in at the next meeting day for 50% credit. Once a student has used this, they will not get credit for a missing assignment for the rest of the quarter. Homework assignments are worth 10 points each.
Quizzes: For each chapter there will be two quizzes. The first will be on day 3 of the lesson and will be on the chapter vocabulary. The second will be on day 5 of the lesson and will be on the chapter grammar and culture. Quizzes are worth 100 points each; I take the average of the actual points on the quiz to reach that score. If you receive a score of 75 or lower on a quiz, you may make corrections on it for partial points; corrections...
