EPYLLION:epyllion-logo-square-perceptual_062615  A READING GROUP FOR TEENS

The current Advanced Placement Examination in Latin comprises two texts, Caesar’s de bellō Gallicō and Vergil’s Aeneid. While many students rising to AP Latin may have a good appreciation of social, political and military history through their prose readings through intermediate level, many still want a deeper appreciation of the epic tradition that inspires Vergil’s poem.

This reading group is designed with that student in mind, namely, a student who is enthusiastic about succeeding on the full scope of the AP Latin examination and the literary skills that study of the Aeneid cultivates, such as thematic interpretation and poetic devices.

ADVICE FOR PARTICIPANTS: Successful completion of 3rd year Latin with the grade of B or higher is advised but not required. Current enrollment in 4th year Latin or higher is advised.
