MCT Level 6 (Dickens) iBook Literature Trilogy with Parent Manual

The Dickens Trilogy contains the classic novels A Christmas CarolThe Cricket on the Hearth, and The Chimes: A Goblin Story. Each book is reproduced in its entirety and includes Michael Clay Thompson's "language illustrations"—close-ups of poetic techniques, four-level analyses of interesting grammar, and comments about writing strategies. Challenging vocabulary is defined at the bottom of each page. The combination of those devices makes these novels perfect companions to his MCT language arts curriculum, which contains grammar, vocabulary, writing, and poetics strands.

Dickens was the greatest genius of the Victorian novel; this trilogy gives young readers an introduction to him and an opportunity to enjoy his work without having to tackle one of his long novels. 

The parent manual includes a short essay by Michael about each novel, vocabulary words to study in advance of the readings, language illustration questions, quotations for quote quizzes, discussion questions and activities, and suggestions for academic writing practice.
