MCT Curriculum iBooks Level 2

Level 2, The Town Level, dramatically increases the challenges in vocabulary and writing from Level 1. Caesar’s English I is a large step up from Building Language, with many more stems and much more text. Children progress from learning about the construction of sentences in Sentence Island to learning about the various types of paragraphs in Paragraph Town. The grammar, poetics, and practice strands of the curriculum all build on the texts from Level 1, reinforcing the knowledge as children move forward in their learning.

Caesar's English I comes in both a standard edition and a classical education edition, which comes in two parts. Parents will need to choose which edition to use with their child.

One instructor manual serves the entire level.
