Student Learning Outcomes
As a result of completing this course successfully, students will be able to:
(1) Analyze and appreciate the place of Tacitus in the Latin literary tradition by reading selections from his writings in various literary genres and by assessing Tacitus' vocabulary choices, his syntactic preferences, his rhetorical strategies, and his presentation of characters and events.
(Student success will be assessed through translation, commentary, and essay sections on Midterm and Final Exams)
(2) Evaluate the moral and ethical dimensions of Tacitus' literary work in order to illustrate and explicate the nature of Roman imperial culture in the early years of the Roman Empire (which endured until May 29th, 1453).
(Student success will be assessed through prewrites and outlines based on in-class discussion of required essay topics and upon the final essays—see below)
(3) Analyze selections from Tacitus' writings as a primary source via traditional and more recent scholarly methodologies and analyze others’ interpretations of these texts. In order to accomplish this outcome, students will identify, analyze, synthesize, evaluate and employ both textual evidence and various types of resources and scholarly approaches appropriate to topics addressed in Classical Studies in writing assignments that require formulating a logical argument based on analysis of scholarly literature and argument.
(Student success will be assessed through prewrites and outlines based on in-class discussion of required essay topics and upon the final essays—see below)
