Metodi didattici

Students are invited to discuss and to take part in the lessons. A basic knowledge of ancient Greek and Latin is recommended but not compulsory. Students who have never studied Greek can apply to the Dept. of Classics for the admission to the elementary course of this language which usually start in October.

Modalità di verifica e valutazione dell'apprendimento

The exam is oral. All students will be asked at least 3 questions, one on the reading book and 2 on the texts and issues dealt at classes.

Exam is passed if pupils answer correctly and in a proper way. Outstanding knowledge of both the handbook and the texts is evaluated at the maximum; good knowledge and ability in the analysis of the texta, but more mnemonic can earn a good evaluation; a knowledge with some mistakes and misundertandings in the texts are sufficient to pass, serious lacunae in the knowledge of the handbook and no skills in the reading and interpretations of the texts do not allow to pass.

There are at least 7 possibilities per year to give the exam; the dates are published twice, normally in November for the first 5, and March-April for the last 2. All students must be listed on Almaesami and no students are allowed to give exams out of the public lists.

All students must be present at the call of the examination, normally at 9.30 of the examination day.

Please check in advance if your administrative position is regular, otherwise you will not be admitted to the exam.

Strumenti a supporto della didattica

All texts commented and discussed with the students during the course will be available on www.IOL.unibo.it, and all texts will be shown in the critical edition and, if necessary, on a digital image.
