9th Grade Latin III - Week 25 < Week 26 > Week 27

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: translate the Latin that appears on p. 84 (St. 40 model sentences) Review the translations... explain what is going on with the tenses (e.g., why "Salvius responded that he IS innocent." is incorrect) After that, let's read the last chapter of the novel! Salvius is being put on trial... why???? List all the terrible things he's done...
With accusatio I, just read the story aloud expressively and then ask:
(a) Who's who in the picture, based on what you just heard (after reading the 1st para.)
(b) What various suggestions to people offer Salvius? (2nd para.)
(c) What role is Memor playing? Why? (3rd para.)
(d) What's Domitian doing during all this? (4th para.)
Last, take the Buzz quiz over accusatio 1

Do Now: accusatio I worksheet (B only, and just pick the correct phrase/clause to fill in the blank/do not translate)... do this from memory (w/o looking at book; the exact wording is used)
Review answers and then pre-read the accusatio II story by taking the Buzz quiz (10 questions, 15 minutes... one attempt).  When done, begin translating the first paragraph. Go over any most missed and translate the story together. Evaluate how we translate the participial clauses and the indirect statements.
With class time left, in which case I'd like them to review passive voice with PTL 1 (on paper, no Buzz quiz)

Do Now: Practicing the language 1 on p. 93 (no Buzz quiz... write in notes).
read back over accusatio II and answer the following questions (based on most missed from accusatio II Buzz quiz)
1. Name at least two things that Myropnous revealed to Domitia.
2. Give at least two rumors that were circulating about Aquae Sulis and Salvius.
3. How did Salvius' friends react to Salvius, now under suspicion of these things?
Review what's going on in the story and then students read the first paragraph of cognitio on their own silently (p. 86) for two minutes... give them a heads up that Domitian is the subject of addidit in line 5.
Just work out the basic idea together briefly, and then go back through and translate the paragraph as a class. Keep the pace up.
Then, read the rest in Latin with the class... exaggerate the claims.
3rd paragraph... QUINTUS SHOWS UP! Again, read it in Latin. Then go back through and figure out what Quintus affirmed/declared/testified to (affirmavit, line 18).

Do Now: "cognitio" Buzz Quiz (one attempt)
review and look at most missed together
Look at indirect statements through About the language and go through the examples in part B.
They've seen a bunch of the 3b variety (accusatores affirmaverunt... commisisse), but not many of the other varieties (puer dixit.. revenire is especially difficult) with white boards
Finally, take the Buzz Quiz, go over most missed, allow additional attempts (in class or at home).

Do Now: "ars grammatica" worksheet (#1-12 only) Review these grammatical concepts and then the kids pair up to translate lines 23-35.
With partner, read desperatio I and answer comp questions on p. 89... review answers/story together
Look at most missed questions on ATL 1 indirect statement Buzz Quiz 
On "Quintus says/said that..." worksheet, pick correct forms and translate the indirect statements for #1 and #2 (if time, #3-4 as well)
