Cameron's three classes this semester were: Akkadian, Targumic Aramaic, and History and Archaeology of the Ancient Near East.
Akkadian focussed mostly on grammar and structure using John Huehnergard's "A Grammar of Akkadian." Cameron enjoyed this class and did well on the weekly quizzes.
Targumic Aramaic definitely consumed most of his time this semester. He under took this class independently with Dr. Stuart. It was Cameron's responsibility to learn the grammar, structure and vocabulary all on his own. The sole grade for this class rested on one final exam in which Cameron had to translate and annotate portions of text of Dr. Stuart's choosing. These texts weren't revealed until Cameron took the exam. Overall Cameron did well on this exam through God's grace.
History and Archaeology of the Ancient Near East was a fun and interesting class. I can say this first hand since I got to audit this class with Cameron. Something I wish we could do more. The texts covered an immense subject and was very thorough: The Ancient Near East Vol. I an II by Amelie Kuhrt and Archeology of the Land of the Bible - 10000-586 B.C.E by Amihai Mezar
Thus, winter is now upon us, time to hit the GCTS sledding hill.
