KET Latin II 2016-2017
Students in Latin II have a thorough review of grammar and vocabulary covered in KET Latin I class. They add to their grammatical and vocabulary skills throughout the year while continuing to follow the Cornelian family in their journey to Rome. Through the eyes of this fictitious family, students learn about life in Rome. They become familiar with many of the ancient structures, learn about dining customs, education, housing and the many forms of entertainment available to the ancient Romans. They study Roman history, focusing on the period of the Republic as well.
