Course Description:  In Classical Greek I the students will be introduced to the ancient Greek language using the Greek to GCSE: Part 1 & 2 textbooks. Specifically, the course will concentrate on the so-called Attic dialect (Attica being the region in which Athens was located), the normative dialect for speakers and writers of ancient Greek from the fifth century BC to the fall of Constantinople in AD 1453 (and beyond). The students will begin to gain a mastery of the first stage of the Greek language through a combination of translation into English, translation into Greek, written composition, listening practice, and reading. We will meet once a week which means that the students will be responsible for working hard and completing homework and projects during the rest of the week. During class, the students will be guided through important grammar and learning vocabulary throughout the year. We will read Greek texts such as Plato and Sophocles, as well as texts written in other dialects as well such as selections from Homer, Herodotus, and potentially the New Testament.
