The Legamus Transitional Readers are innovative texts that form a bridge between the initial study of Latin via basal textbooks and the reading of authentic author texts. This series of texts has been developed by a special committee of high school and college teachers to facilitate this challenging transition.

Cicero: A Legamus Transitional Reader introduces students to Cicero's Latin via selections from his Pro Archia. Introductory materials include an overview of the life and works of Cicero, historical context, and bibliography. The authors combine special visual features?including line alignments based on meaning with the "pass through" method?to make Cicero's sometimes complicated prose more student-friendly. Appendices on grammar and figures of speech as well as a pull-out vocabulary complete the book's student aids. After finishing Cicero: A Legamus Transitional Reader, students will be prepared to undertake a more complete study of Cicero in an upper level Latin literature or college level course.

Features:

pre-reading materials to help students understand underlying cultural, historical, and literary concepts

review explanations of grammatical and syntactical usage, with practice exercises

"pass through" approach that begins with the main statement and adds clauses with each "pass" thus assisting students in unraveling Cicero's complex sentences



first versions of the Latin text with transitional aids: lines aligned to facilitate comprehension, implied words in parentheses, difficult noun-adjective pairings in different fonts

complete vocabulary and grammatical notes on facing pages

post-reading materials that encourage appreciation of Cicero's style, reflection on what has been read, and making connections to the modern world

final version of each Latin text without transitional aids, but with notes and vocabulary

pull-out vocabulary of frequently used Latin words

four maps and eighteen illustrations that complement the Latin selections and background essays
