Students begin their study of IB SL Latin by taking 3 mods of Latin 4 (LAT400A), followed by a mod that is focused on preparation for the IB SL Latin exam. The IB standard-level readings change from year to year, but often include selections from Ovid’s Metamorphoses, Vergil’s Aeneid, and poems of Catullus and Horace. Students increase their Latin reading comprehension, translation ability, and literary analysis skills. Each student chooses a research topic and completes a research dossier using primary sources from the classical world. Assessments in this course are based on the questions found on the IB exam.
There is a summer assignment for this course.
