Texts: An Introduction to Ancient Greek: A Literary Approach (Second Edition)

Lysias, On the Murder of Eratosthenes. PDF at Blackboard or purchase at Amazon
Overview: We will finish Ancient Greek Alive, which focuses on completing the verb system and the more irregular aspects of the third declension, as well as more complex sentence structures. If all goes according to schedule, we will spend the last month of the term reading real, unadapted Greek (Plato, Lysias, et al.).
If you miss a quiz or test without notifying me in advance with justification, you may not make up the assignment.
Note that I will weigh the second half of the course more heavily than the first if you show real improvement as the semester progresses.
