AP Vergil

(1) Beta College Vergil  (18.6 mb, pdf., early beta ed.,  3July20)

This incomplete draft includes the  Advanced Placement selections for Vergil’s Aeneid  listed below in 63 lessons with Latin text, corresponding  vocabulary, and grammatical notes in a two-page format.

This pdf was designed a number of years ago for private use and never intended for publication, but during the course of the lockdown a number of readers and instructors requested a free pdf commentary on AP Vergil selections for online instruction, and I agreed to make available what I had.

The notes and vocabulary are incomplete and will be heavily revised, after most of the grammar boxes have been added. This beta will be updated regularly on this webpage in the coming months, Please note that this commentary is copyrighted.

Lines covered:

Book 1: 1-209, 418-440, 494-578

Book 2: 40-56, 201-249, 268-297, 559-620

Book 4: 160-218, 259-361, 659-705

Book 6: 295-332, 384-425, 450-476, 847-899

(8) PowerPoint presentations (31Jan14, .zip, .ppt)

The presentations include six lines of Vergil per slide in black font on a white background. Teachers can project these slides on a whiteboard, for example, and use colored whiteboard markers to annotate the text as they translate in class. Sample #1 shows how a teacher can add simple animation (red font appears through a click-prompt) to reinforce grammar explanations offered by student in class, and Sample #2 shows how a teacher can add simple animation to provide supplement vocabulary when encouraging smoother sight-reading.
