Required Text: * Wheelock's Latin, 6th edition, by Frederic M. Wheelock and R.A. LaFleur (HarperCollins, 2000), ISBN -10: 0060956410; ISBN -13: 978-0060956417): NOTE: The textbook is not currently available directly from Amazon.com; however, numerous copies of the textbook are still available from Amazon Associate sellers (some "new" and "like new") which are linked through the website at Amazon.com at bargain prices. The Latin 2 tutorials does not use the Wheelock's Workbook. The purpose is to allow more time to focus upon translation instead. Students who have been working from the earlier edition of the textbook may continue to use it for Latin 2: * Wheelock's Latin , the 5th edition, by Frederic M. Wheelock; ed. R.A. LaFleur (HarperCollins, 1995), ISBN 0064671798. The differences between the 5th and 6th editions are fairly limited. However, it will reduce confusion and save class time if everyone is using the same text.
In Latin 2 all of the assignments are taken directly from the textbook itself. On the assignment schedule "P&R" refers to the "Practice & Review" Latin sentences; "SA" refers to "Sententiae Antiquae;" "Latin Passages" refers to the Latin paragraphs which follow the Sententiae Antiquae. The first week which includes all three translation assignments in a single chapter is Chapter 3 (see pp. 21-22 in Wheelock's). From that point until the end of the book every chapter includes all three sections. The optional "Latin Challenge" listed at the end of each week's assignment refers to the stories in the separate book: the 5th edition of * 38 Latin Stories by Anne H. Garton (Bolchazy-Carducci Publishers; 5 edition, 1998: ISBN-10: 0865162891; ISBN-13: 978-0865162891) which is available for online purchase through Amazon.com usually within 24 hours.
