SALVETE! 
Today you'll read Aeneid 7 and respond to the attached doc. Attach your completed doc to this Assignment. Due by Monday, 6am.
**A couple notes**
1. if at all possible, please type up your summary (photos/scans of handwriting are difficult to read)
2. The second half of the document asks you to summarize the characters' involvement in this specific book (not a general explanation)
If you don't yet have a copy of the Aeneid, there are some websites which contain decent translations:

Friday
We will review for your Catullus final exam, which will take place on Wednesday, April 14th.  The exam is 75 multiple choice questions.
Here are some things you need to know about:
(1) Who was Catullus? Generally/Briefly, what was his background and during what period in Roman history did he live? 
(2) Who was Clodia? 
(3) Who was Rufus?
(4) For each poem (see below), what is Catullus saying? The questions on this exam will not be focused on grammar or on discreet vocabulary, but instead on the meaning of each poem (as a whole, indvidual phrases, clauses, sentences, lines) and how certain poems communicate with each other (or how certain topics are treated across multiple poems)
(5) One of the main purposes of this final exam is to compel you to look at the corpus of his poetry as a whole, and for all of them to be fresh in your mind before you dive into your end-of-term "Catullus/Taylor Swift" project.
Here is the list of Carmina (hyperlinked to YouTube tutorials): 12357836434551697072757677838586879296101107109.
How to study:

(1) Translate each poem by yourself (just you and the poem... no notes, no vocab, etc.).
(2) Check how you did with your notes and YouTube. If you had a difficult time with a word or grammatical construction here or there, make a note of it and move on. If you really had a hard time with sections of the poem (or the whole thing), repeat #1 and check your progress again.
(3) Take the Buzz quiz and evaluate whether you need to retake and reassess your understanding. Again, be judicious in evaluating your understanding - if you missed a few specific grammar points, make a note of them and move on.  If you were missing comprehension questions or large chunks of the poem, then you will want to re-read and reassess your understanding.
Your final exam is, like the rest of your tests, open-note.  However, you will not earn a good grade if you are not prepared.  BONAM FORTUNAM!
