Transcript of Carla Cipriani LY1 Final Portfolio

By Carla Cipriani
Latin Year 1 Final ePortfolio
The next day Felix comes to the study. Caecilius invited him to come.
"A huge boar," said Caecilius, "lies hidden in the mountain Vesuvio. The friends often have seen this boar. The animal however is ferocious. The friends never have captured him."
"I am a brave hunter," responded Felix. "Perhaps the dead gladiator was afraid. The living boar however does not scare me! But why do you and Quintus not invite me to the hunt? Surely Quintus is not afraid?"
Caecilius therefore calls for his son. Quintus happily took a long hunting spear and with his father and the freed man hurries to the hunt. Many servants and many dogs were there. All proceeded to the mountain, where the boar lay hidden.
The servant, before they caught sight of the boar, shouted ferociously. The ferocious boar, because he heard the noise, ferociously attacked. Felix threw his hunting spear, but it didn't hit the boar. The freed man, because he fell on the ground, shouted, "Oh dear! The boar is headed for me!"
Quintus proceeded bravely and threw his hunting spear. Look! The boar was pierced. The huge boar fell down dead on the ground.
"Hurrah!" shouted Caecilius. "Once Felix served Quintus. This son of mine served Felix!"
In this section it talked about the different verb endings including the perfect and imperfect for both the past and present tense. For me this was a little confusing because it was a lot of new information that was thrown at me. What I had trouble with was keeping all of the endings straight for all of the different cases, (first person, second, person, etc..). But around the time that I learned this, I was learning the same grammatical point in my Spanish 3 class. This helped tremendously because they were both pretty similar. Now I feel really confident in these verb endings. Also when I went over my Stage 11 &12 final assessment it was clear that I didn't know my perfect endings. Seeing that Mr Gutkowski, told me to go home and study them briefly. I did that and now I really am comfortable in this grammatical point.
First Attempt
Final Exam Videos
Over the course of the year, my vocabulary has widened due to the fact that I have been exposed to many Latin words that are the roots for many English words. I noticed that some examples of this is when I was given a piece of music, for my Wind Ensemble class, with the title, "Sine Nomine", "The Song Without a Name". I immediately recognized the word sine, which means without, due to the fact that it is one of the vocabulary words in the Latin book. This is one example of how Latin has expanded my knowledge of words and how I can apply that to everyday life. Also I noticed that Word Study for me has increased my sense of the English language and has really opened my eyes to where words in English really come from and now for me it makes sense why these words in English are the way they are. For example in the Word Study for Stage 14 I noticed that a lot of the English words listed had Latin roots that made perfect sense for the actual definition of the English word. For example the word donation comes from the Latin word, "donum" which means gift or present. Knowing what a donation was, it clicked for me why the word donation means what it does today.
My Range in Vocabulary:
My Experience as a Self-Pace Student
Translation that Represents Me:
animal ferox
I feel that this translation best represents my individual ability and skill. I feel this way because this is the point where I really started utilizing the skills and putting together certain grammatical points that I learned and it really clicked. This is also the stage where the stories started to get more complex but I managed to meet the challenges by being able to coherently put together sentences to successfully translate a story that made sense.

The difference between my first video and my second one is pretty big! I have definitely grown as a Latin student from the time from September to June. I really noticed a difference in answering the questions and my ability to understand them. For example one of the questions was to find two nouns in the accusative case and I remember back in September I had absolutely no idea what that even meant. Now when I was faced with the same question, I had no difficulty picking out the nouns. This shows me that I really have learned a lot from September to June and I have really grown over the months as a Latin student.

Word Study Notes Stage 14
House of the Tragic Poet:

I am really proud of this project because it not only highlights the fact that I was able to work effectively with other people but to come up with a project that was really put together. In this project we utilized our skills with technology to create a presentation that was well put together. For example I was really proud that we were able to figure out how to put a YouTube video that clearly explained and even went into the house, to give people an even closer look at the house, to see what it really looks like in the inside today. I was also really proud of the way that I, and the rest of my group, went really into detail with the project and thoroughly explained each part of the house. It was really interesting for me to also learn about the house. Something that really interested me when I was researching was the fact that certain details on a house can give a person insight to their lives. For example there was a mosaic of a dog in the entrance of the house which could indicate that the people living there might of had a dog. This was something that I found interesting when I did this project.

Mary Beard Article:
Mary Beard Article

I read the article by Mary Beard and I found it really interesting. Something that really shocked me was the detailed accounts that Caecilius Jucundus kept of his financial records. They were so detailed and were kept in such great conditions that people today could still read them. It's amazing how advanced Pompeii was. Keep in mind that this was back in the first century and these people were keeping financial records that were really detailed. Overall I thought the whole article was really interesting!

This culture assessment was for Stage 1 and it was really interesting for me. In this assessment we had to read this article and then reflect on it on this class wide forum. I really liked this because I was able to share my thoughts with the rest of the class and see their reactions as well. I was really proud of the fact that I really went in deep and really reacted to the article completely and thoroughly. This article was really interesting because I was really getting exposed to topics that I had never really been exposed to yet. I was really impressed with how advanced the ancient Pompeians were. and I was proud of the fact that I was able to effectively and coherently get my message across and really react to the article.

An example of this was in Stage 7 when I did my Stage reflection. I had a well thought out reflection that highlighted both my struggles and successes throughout the stage. What I've learned about myself is that I tend to move at a slower pace but only because I tend to really go in depth and am really thorough in each of the activities and note taking that we had throughout the year. This isn't a bad thing but I've learned that sometimes I take a little too long on some things and I need to move a little faster if I want to reach my goal which is to make it to Stage 18.
Over the course of the year I had some triumphs and setbacks as a student in the self-pace program. My blog has recorded my journey through Latin Year 1 and contains evidence of these setbacks and triumphs. One setback that I've had would be not getting to Stage 18 which is what I had hoped to get to by the end of the school year. I still managed to get an A for regular stream but I wanted to try to get the Honors credit for the year. Luckily for me I will be able to continue on in the summer to get that credit but I would have rather have stuck with my original plan. One triumph that I had over the year was my thoroughness with my actual blog. i had many good reflections for the culture sections for each stage.
Latin as a "Dead" Language
At the beginning of the school year, as I was comparing my schedule to my classmates, a lot of them were surprised as to why I was taking Latin. They didn't understand why I was taking a language that was considered "useless" since no one spoke it anymore. To be honest I didn't necessarily disagree but I wanted to give it a chance and thought that it might be cool to take. As the year went on I no longer thought of Latin as a useless and "dead" language and can now tell my classmates that now. Latin is extremely useful even though it is not spoken. So many English words have Latin roots so it is really prevalent in our language. So in this way Latin is not dead but more alive than ever.
