The Word Within the Word III: Student Book
Class set order code: 9330S
This is the vocabulary book in Level 7 of the MCT language arts curriculum.
The Word Within the Word III is the culmination of the series, building upon Volumes I and II and adding to them with new stems and words. Like the first two volumes, Volume III contains thirty lessons, which are structured the same way that the lessons in Volume II were set up: each lesson contains a list of stems, with meanings and example words, as well as a list of advanced academic words that contain the stems, ten of which are new and five of which are brought forward from the first two volumes.
The lessons in this book include various elements from each of the first two volumes, including stem close-ups, notes and ideas pages, reading comprehension questions, analogies, antonyms, comprehension questions about challenging readings, and invention activities, in which students are asked to play with the words in the context of creative writing.
In this volume, the historical essays feature the battle for control of Rome between the assassins of Caesar, Mark Antony, and Octavian and what the Romans did with the peace that came with the end of the civil wars, particularly Rome’s development as the greatest manufacturing power the world would see until the nineteenth century. More than one hundred photographs illustrate the book, bringing ancient Rome to life.
This book is printed in black and white, but there is a full-color edition available. (See below.)
