In order for us to have a successful semester there will be some ground rules. Do not write in your books. This practice encourages you to memorize translations and not to learn the Greek. Also do not read a written out translation. Make notes on vocabulary you do not know or grammatical points you want to refer to but translate from your Greek text. Attendance is critical in language classes especially those which are small. Everyone must come to class every time and must be prepared to translate. If everyone contributes in the classroom we will be able to read Greek and learn about the philosophy of Socrates through Plato. To help us in this endeavor there will be outside readings in English on topics such as philosophy and education.
