Tirones Webinar: Preparing Students for the A.P. Exam

March 23: Translating Literally

In this webinar Jill Crooker will focus on literal translation in terms of how it will be scored on the exam as well as how literal translation will be tested in multiple choice. Teachers are encouraged to use these scoring methods in their instruction of Latin from earliest years onward. If this is new to you, you can implement the practice in the final month before the exam. We will look at 1 Caesar passage & 1 Vergil passage and break each down into meaningful units. This should help students see how accurate they need to be in May.

The webinar will begin at 6:00 p.m. Eastern time, with 45 minutes of explanation followed by time for questions and answers. To register or for more information write pender@wfu.edu, Mary Pendergraft.
