(Grade 12; Prerequisites: Greek I, department chair approval; 2 periods/week; full year; l/2 credit)
After completing a survey of essential grammar and syntax (e.g. the subjunctive and optative moods), students move on to read an appropriate original ancient Greek text; in the past, these have included Plato’s Crito, selections from the Greek New Testament, comedies by Aristophanes, and selections from Herodotus’s Histories. These readings continue to be anchored in a consideration of the broader Greek world (e.g. geography, art, literature) through use of the department’s audio-visual holdings and realia.
