Passages are accompanied by pre-reading materials, grammatical exercises, complete vocabulary, notes designed for reading comprehension, and other reading aides. Introductory materials (including a section on Catullan meters) and illustrations are included.

* the first version of the Latin text with gapped words in parentheses and difficult noun-adjective pairings highlighted by the use of a different font

* literary notes on the page facing the unchanged Latin text
* post-reading materials for each passage designed to help the student understand Vergil's style of writing and to allow the student to reflect upon what has been read

This series of transitional readers is the first to use proven reading techniques to aid students in making the transition from a basal textbook to an authentic Latin author. The Catullus Transitional Reader is the second book of the series to be published and is specifically designed to help students learn to read Catullus before they are enrolled in an AP Latin Poetry course.
