MCT Curriculum iBooks Level 6

In Level 6, the grammar, vocabulary, and writing strands continue to increase in difficulty, building cumulatively on the previous level so that children are steadily reinforcing their knowledge while simultaneously expanding and deepening it. The largest step up is in the poetics book, where children are asked to consider the concept of beauty, particularly in the context of the works of Plato. Another new challenge is afforded by the practice book, which now contains sentences from the classics of English and American literature. Children who completed Level 5 will find this level challenging but rewarding; however, there is enough review that even children new to the program will be able to complete it.

One instructor manual serves the entire level.
