THE NEW Magic Lens Volume 1, IS HERE

We are pleased to announce that we now have Michael Clay Thompson’s completely revised, Volume One of his classic work on grammar, MAGIC LENS.

This, the Third Edition of the first grammar book in the secondary level of our Language Arts Curriculum, is entirely based on the four-level sentence analysis. This analysis (parts of speech, parts of sentence, phrases, and clauses), is Michael Clay Thompson’s enormously successful and original approach to teaching grammar. Now the Student Books and Teacher Manuals are in full color with an improved layout, and include enhanced sentence diagramming, whilst the “loops” and class tests are on a CD with the Teacher Manual for school use. Punctuation is dealt with at each level of the analysis.

For Home Educators who do not want to pay for the higher-priced Teacher Manual with CD, there is a new, low-cost, black and white Homeschool Parent Answer Guide to accompany the Student Book. The differences between the two are the color printing and the CD in the Teacher Manuals.

Our aim in producing this greatly improved version is to clarify, simplify, and illuminate the endlessly fascinating complexity of English grammar, whilst maintaining the price the same as before and as low as possible. We believe this revised version is visually and thematically even more accessible and will be a great asset to our constantly developing RFP LA Curriculum.
