Greek 3

Fall 2010

The following is a tentative syllabus for our Iliad/Apology course. We will augment with commentaries, etc. We will modify specific assignments as appropriate.

In preparing each assignment, please consult whatever secondary works and commentaries that you may have, and bring such works with you to class. We will do more than merely translate in class.

Requirements:

Three translation examinations, including grammar questions: 25% each (75%)

Class participation (25%)

Class participation: Regular preparation and class participation are expected, and will affect your grade. Foreign language study is such that certain aspects of one's performance cannot be judged by examinations, but rather by class performance. 25% of your final grade will be based upon daily class participation. Effective class participation assumes preparation of daily assignments before class, and therefore submitted homework will be part of the assessment.
Class attendance. Students are expected to go to class regularly.

Accommodations for students with disabilities: Southwestern University is committed to assisting students with disabilities. Southwestern University will make reasonable accommodations for students with documented disabilities. To arrange accommodations students should contact Kimele Carter, the Academic Services Coordinator within the Office of Academic Success, PRC 120; phone 863-1536; e-mail carterk@southwestern.edu). Students seeking accommodations should notify the Academic Services Coordinator at least two weeks before services are needed. It is the student’s responsibility to discuss any necessary accommodations with the appropriate faculty member.

Final grades. The plus and minus grading system will be used for final grades.
