Set texts for AS Latin 2009
I saw you recently referred to the Bolchazzy Carducci In Catilinam I which is one of the texts set this year for AS Latin. Perhaps you could also draw attention to my own version of In Catilinam I in the Classical Workbooks series (www.classicalworkbooks.com)?
We’ve only been going since 2006, but already one student in every three taking AS Latin in 2009 is doing it with a Classical Workbook, and the other two aren’t using one because they don’t know that these workbooks exist*.
Perhaps you might also mention the poetry workbook, Ovid Metamorphoses VIII. This is much more relevant to the needs of the AS student than the the Hollis version recommended by OCR (which is aimed at scholars and undergraduates). It also costs less than half the price.
