They learn independent and dependent uses.of the subjunctive mood while expanding their understanding of the uses of nouns. Gerunds, gerundives, and new grammatical constructions are also practiced.

In the spring term, students will explore excerpts of Latin from classical authors, as they begin the transition to reading authentic Latin literature.

Language Acquisition and Development (LAD) is designed to strengthen studentsí understanding of language, and to reinforce their skills in the areas of reading fluency, reading comprehension, word attack skills, vocabulary recognition and usage, grammatical concepts, and other rudiments of language. Throughout the year, students will study short stories, articles, short essays, and other literature to deepen their understanding of the material and be able to analyze, interpret, and converse constructively about what they have read. Vocabulary words will mostly derive from the context of assigned reading, and punctuation and grammar will complement reading-based coursework. Assessments will include a variety of informal writing assignments, creative projects and quizzes.
