8th Grade Latin II - Week 9 < Week 10 > Week 11
NOTA BENE: The information on this page is subject to (and most certainly will) change. Students are responsible for writing down their assignments in their CJs.
Do Now: 4th and 5th declension (watch tutorial and take quiz once)
When done, go to Practicing the language 3 and work on exercise in your notes
Check results of Buzz quiz and use white boards to check retention/understanding
- what is strangest 4th declension form you remember? (most said portuum) discuss basic premise... these are same as other case endings from 1st-3rd decl. even portuum, which was probably early on porturum... like arum, orum, um, erum.
- what is the 4th decl. mnemonic (PIMT)... what does it stand for?
- what is the 5th decl. mnemonic (REED)... what does it stand for?
- two hardest forms are genitive and dative singular, so what are they (use portus and res to check)
Check progress and understanding of 4th and 5th declensions with Declension Review
Go over Stage 17 test (do extra credit quiz tonight)
Practicing the language 3 (relative clauses and verb tenses)
BTW, a full (and seemingly very well researched) tour of Alexandria by way of Assassin's Creed is here - very interesting!
Stage 17 Test Extra Credit quiz due by morning of next class
Do Now: most missed with PTL 3 and the 4th/5th declension Buzz quizzes
Reteach and follow up with Practicing the language 2 (relative clauses and subject-verb agreement)
Show picture on p. 94 and describe in Latin... students listen and show understanding by head nods, etc.
"omnes! ecce! in pictura sunt multi viri. hi viri sunt in taberna. ubi est haec taberna? in Alexandria! omnes.. ecce... 'Eutychus et Clemens'... ubi in pictura est Clemens? est hic vir? ille vir? non! ubi est Clemens? ita... hic vir est Clemens. omnes, memorate! Clemens tabernam habet. Clemens est TABERNARIUS. omnes, Quintus est tabernarius? Non... Quintus tabernam non habet. Clemens tabernam habet, itaque Clemens est tabernarius."
"quis est vir alius? pro sententia 'Eutychus et Clemens,' hic vir est Eutychus. omnes, Eutychus tabernas non habet. Eutychus NON est tabernarius. Eutychus est vir malus. Eutychus est dux. Eutychus est dux malus."
"nunc ecce, qui sunt alii viri? omnes, hi viri sunt mali. Booooo! (spectate facies scelestos!) omnes, hi viri non sunt tabernarii. hi viri tabernas non habent. hi viri multas res terribiles agunt. hi viri sunt LATRONES. latrones pecuniam capiunt. latrones tabernas incendunt. latrones alios tabernarios petunt. latrones alios tabernarios vulnerant. omnes, latrones quoque tabernarios necant! Cur?????"
"Quod Eutychus est dux. Eutychus est dux latronum. Eutychus pecuniam ex omnibus tabernariis vult. Eutychus multam pecuniam ex omnibus tabernariis vult! si tabernarii pecuniam non dant, Eutychus et latrones tabernarios petunt. Eutychus et latrones tabernas incendunt. Eutychus et latrones tabernarios vulnerant. Eutychus et latrones tabernarios necant!"
"Eutychus est vir malus! hi latrones sunt viri mali! omnes, estne Clemens vir malus??? NON!!!!"
taberna - read first paragraph together, translate second para. on own (what do we think of Barbillus after this??)
Do Now: Translate lines 13-17 of taberna (end of story) into your notes
in officina Eutychi I: re-enactment video... start 40 seconds in (starting with iratus Clemens... in line 6) - deal with this story in quickly... confirm understanding of less obvious parts (heus Atlas, for instance)
Take Buzz quiz over "in officina Eutychi 1" while watching the video and reading the story.
When done, clear desk and get out 4th and 5th declension consolidation worksheet (requesting forms of portus and res with 1st-3rd examples as prompts)
Review 4th and 5th with that worksheet.
Final point of the week is a preview of something for next week: look at vir fortis, senex infirmus, and hanc tabernam (at end of tabernam)... introduce the concept/idea of noun-adjective agreement (we knew what this meant from vocab, but do they always look the same/have the same ending? no)
