AP Latin Course Home Page

This page now features the important information and resources you need to implement the redesigned AP Latin course, which went into effect in fall 2012. AP Latin course revisions promote reading Latin poetry and prose with historical and literary sensitivity. Students develop linguistic skills by engaging in multiple activities, including translating poetry and prose from the required reading list. AP Latin is roughly equivalent to an upper-intermediate college or university course.

AP Latin Course Planning and Pacing Guides

Written by AP teachers, these versatile guides demonstrate a variety of ways to plan and pace the AP Latin curriculum across one academic year. Each author brings a unique perspective to approaching the course based on his or her teaching context (e.g., demographics, schedule, school type, setting), and presents a host of ideas for activities, resources, and assessments.

AP Exam Information and Resources

Beginning in May 2013, the revised AP Latin Exam assesses students' ability to read, comprehend, translate, and analyze Latin poetry and prose, both from the assigned readings (Vergil's Aeneid and Caesar's Gallic War) and from sight-reading passages, and will continue to feature multiple-choice and free-response questions, as described in the AP Latin Course and Exam Description, Effective Fall 2012 (.pdf/1.0MB).

A full Practice Exam reflecting the new course is available for all AP Latin teachers in a secure location. Sign in to your course audit account for access.
