Michael Clay Thompson: Practice Workbooks

Michael Clay Thompson: Practice Workbooks Series Cover

The practice workbooks offer a tremendous instructional opportunity. In conjunction with our grammar, vocabulary, poetics, and writing series, they offer students a universe beyond their imagination—and far beyond the ken of their peers who do not get the opportunity to learn from the works of Michael Clay Thompson.

It is a series of consumable workbooks that covers every level of the MCT language arts curriculum. In each book, there are one hundred sentences for Thompson's unique, four-level analysis practice. Throughout, he has taken enormous care to instruct students in the nuances of great writing while bringing them face to face with the intricacies of grammar at its most creative levels.

Michael writes: “We think of grammar and vocabulary as different areas of language study, but doing these analyses is a sharp reminder that every part of speech is a word, and every word is a part of speech—without exception. Formal language study requires rigorous and connected grammar and vocabulary development.”

In the student books, there is a sentence on each page with four lines beneath it where students can write in the parts of speech, the parts of the sentence, phrases, and clauses.

The teacher manuals give not only the correct answers but also extensive explanations, comments, and topics for discussion. It is essential to have both the student book and the teacher manual.

Any mix of practice books can be ordered. Please note that in most cases, the shopping cart will not show the actual discount; this will be applied when you are billed, and no matter what the shopping cart says, you will never be billed or charged at a higher rate than that to which you are entitled.

Additional iBook Features: The one hundred interactive sentences have boxes below the four lines where students can type in the parts of speech, the parts of the sentence, the phrases, and the clauses that are in each sentence. Students can then self-check their answers with the check button, which also reveals comments about the grammar, vocabulary, poetics, and writing of each sentence. Because all the answers are available in the iBook version, no teacher manual is required.
