Greek 4

Fall 2008

Instructor: H. W. Haskell (haskell@southwestern.edu)
Office: MBH 223, tel. 1554
Office hours: tba

Course text: Plato, Apology (James J. Helm, ed.); Xenophon, Apology (D. Konstan, ed.); Aristophanes, Clouds
In this course, we will continue to combine translation with grammatical analysis and to devote time to cultural, historical, etymological, and linguistic issues. The ability to read Greek allows one not only to delve into the ancient past (classical and ecclesiastical), but it also helps to develop a sharper understanding of English and other languages and provides an excellent foundation for English vocabulary building.
Grading

Exams. The exams consist of passages for translation (Greek to English), which test one's ability to pull together material (grammar & vocabulary.

Quizzes. Scheduled quizzes are noted in the syllabus grid below. Additional quizzes will be added as necessary. Quizzes test paradigms abd basic principles of grammar.

Class participation and attendance: Regular preparation, class participation, and attendance 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. 10% of your final grade will be based upon daily class participation; effective class participation assumes preparation of daily assignments before class.

Final grades. The plus and minus grading system, in effect at Southwestern, will be used for final grades. Semester % averages will translate to the following letter grades:
