6th Grade Exam Review
Home ] Up ]

The first trimester exam will have 5 parts.

I.  Vocabulary

As you know, the only effective way to communicate (read, write, speak, and listen) in a foreign language is to know vocabulary.  The first section will be either fill in the blank from a word bank or multiple choice.  The second section will be from Latin to English with no help.  I will probably include the words that you have trouble with in this section  (iterum/iratus, etc.)  Vocabulary pages are 31, 32, 33, 34, 49, 81.

II.  Endings

The second most important thing (and still vital to foreign language learning) is endings and what they do.  For this section, you must know the noun endings, what they do, and what they mean.  For nouns, you may click here for a better explanation.  For verbs, you should click here.  You will have to know what the nominative and accusative do in a sentence and identify the case and gender of nouns.

III.  Translation

Put the two above things together, you should be able to translate sentences.  We have practiced.  Pay attention to endings.  This section will look very similar to the story about Quintus  Caecilius Felix on pages 78-80. 

IV. Hercules

One question.  Why didn't Disney include the 12 labors as part of the movie?  These labors made him famous and superhuman.  Why weren't they part of the story?  Go to Hercules' life and make sure you know what happened.  If you accurately include 8 of the Labors in your answer, you will get the best grade.  5 is ok, 2 is not ok.  Knowing about zero labors is not going to get you any points.

V.  The Trojan War

I will ask you to tell me a specific part of the story of the Trojan War.  I will tell you what part on the day of the exam, and I will provide you a list of names so you can spell everything correctly.  You should know who is charge of what side and what they do/did.  Click here to see the list that we have taken in class.  If you haven't already, check out the page about Art and the Trojan War.  It has pictures of the events of the war and is in outline form to help you.   If you need additional help, consult Children's Homer.  You should have read it over the summer.  Or you can come see me.
