Assessment is both formative (in-class work) and summative (through regularly scheduled tests). Exercises to develop the students' understanding of language and grammar will be drawn from the 'Practising the Language' sections in the Cambridge Latin Course as well as the student workbook which accompanies the course (not necessary to buy). Students will be encouraged to ask questions, complete exercises,, deliver projects and offer presentations on the history and cultural elements of the course.
