Latin 4 PreAP, are you ready to read some real Latin?! We'll start with some Vergil and Caesar, but will move on to Pliny the Younger, Catullus, and perhaps Plautus any other authors you choose. Plus we will be venturing into areas I have never truly done with level 4 students before.
There are new Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills in place this year which prescribe proficiency levels which we should reach by the end of the year:
"At the end of Level IV, students of classical languages should reach an Advanced Low to Advanced Mid proficiency level in reading, a Novice High proficiency level in listening, a Novice Mid to Novice High proficiency level in speaking, and a Novice Mid to Novice High proficiency level in writing. Proficiency levels are aligned with the ACTFL Proficiency Guidelines 2012 and the ACTFL Performance Descriptors for Language Learners."
Note that all other proficiencies are significantly lower than those for reading; in fact, they are there to support reading and promote internalization of structures and to build a stronger mental representation.
