Building Poems: Student Book Cover

Building Poems, the second book of Michael Clay Thompson's poetry series, uses architecture as an extended metaphor, showing that poems are constructed like buildings, with careful attention to every detail. Like the metaphor itself, the book is constructed so that it beautifully illustrates the points made by reinforcing them visually. 

This book takes the same basic topics that were introduced in The Music of the Hemispheres and expands upon them, adding new elements. It includes alliteration, assonance, consonance, end rhyme, rhyme scheme, internal rhyme, eye-rhyme, poetic feet, iambs, trochees, anapests, dactyls, spondees, sonnets, ballads, rime royal, limericks, similes, metaphors, personification, apostrophe, and endstopped versus enjambed lines.

These elements are exhibited in the poems of famous poets such as Lewis Carroll, T.S. Eliot, Emily Dickinson, William Blake, Alfred Lord Tennyson, Robert Louis Stevenson, John Keats, Edward Lear, Walt Whitman, Lord Byron, Robert Frost, Henry Longfellow, Percy Bysshe Shelley, William Shakespeare, and Ralph Waldo Emerson.

The book enables students to understand and appreciate poetry on a far higher level than usual. It can be used as a stand-alone introduction to poetry for young students or to set the stage for a more advanced program in middle or high school.

Practice Town: Student Book Cover

Practice Town is a supplement to Grammar Town and is the practice workbook for the second level of the MCT language arts curriculum. Its aim is to improve students' grammar and writing skills through analysis of individual sentences. Students work through the sentences using a unique four-level analysis method that is introduced in Grammar Town.

Each of the one hundred sentences appears on a separate page with four blank lines beneath it where students can fill in the parts of speech, the parts of the sentence, phrases, and clauses. By examining a wide range of sentences, students will experience the satisfaction of a clear understanding of the principles of English sentences.

This useful workbook is meant to be consumable and is therefore offered at a low cost.

The practice books have class set prices depending upon the quantity ordered; schools and school districts can combine orders of the practice books for maximum discount:

25 books: $9.00 each
50 books: $8.00 each
100 books: $7.00 each
250 books: $6.50 each
500 books: $6.00 each
750 books: $5.50 each
1,000 books: $5.00 each

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 separate screens for students to identify the parts of speech, the parts of the sentence, phrases, and clauses. Students tap and drag their answers beneath the word(s) in the sentence. They can then self-check their answers with the check button. There is a review screen after the fourth level to reinforce the answers. Because all the answers are available in the iBook version, no teacher manual is required.
