The Magic Lens III: Student Book Cover

The Magic Lens III is the culmination of the Magic Lens series, as well as Michael's grammar curriculum. It contains more information about the grammar of the English language than any of the previous books, yet it builds on them all so that there is a cumulative effect of the knowledge gained through them.

The series is entirely based on four-level sentence analysis. This analysis of parts of speech, parts of sentence, phrases, and clauses is Michael Clay Thompson's original and enormously successful approach to teaching grammar. It uses his "t-models" to illustrate how sentences are constructed, exquisitely showcasing complex grammar relationships as simple but beautiful illustrations.

This full-color book not only includes a comprehensive look at grammar; it delves deeply into common grammar errors and usage problems and includes detailed explanations of how grammar affects punctuation. Michael often uses the sentences of great classic writers to show children examples of interesting grammar in some of the most famous literary works in the English language. Practice is provided at every stage so that children are immediately applying what they have learned and actively building a thorough understanding of the inner workings of the language.

Note: New to the fifth edition of this book is a special bonus feature: QR codes that link to audio of Michael Clay Thompson talking about important, potentially confusing, or interesting facts about grammar so that children can hear additional grammar content from the author himself.

Advanced Academic Writing III: Student Book Cover

Advanced Academic Writing III not only requires longer, more complex, and more deeply documented papers of students, it also provides extensive explorations of intellectually advanced attitudes and understandings that differentiate the most mature and outstanding students, teaching students the excitement of aggressive library research and the pleasure of participating in a scholarly tradition that has ennobled research for centuries.

This volume focuses on achieving unity in style and originality in content. It contains more elaborate MLA format rules, more proofreaders' marks, and forty more actual research paper comments. The appendix includes an extensive list of punctuation, grammar, and usage rules and a list of common errors, all of which include and expand upon the content in the first two volumes in the series.

Note: This is a second edition of this book. It reflects the current MLA guidelines, which are substantially changed from those that were in existence when the first edition was written. As a result of those changes, the information in the first edition is now wrong, and no one should continue to use the first edition.

Poetry, Plato, and the Problem of Truth: Student Book Cover

The final volume in the poetics program by Michael Clay Thompson continues the study of poetic techniques and poems and takes them to an even higher level. Using Plato's Dialogues and Socratic questioning as a source of ideas and a way of thinking about the concept of truth, students are led to consider the difficult question that has absorbed philosophers, scientists, artists, and poets throughout time: What is the nature of truth?

Many poems deal with the concept of truth. Great poems that stand the test of time express, at their core, something that is true. Poetry, Plato, and the Problem of Truth looks at the truth of sound, meter, and stanza and at figures of speech that explore truth through comparison. The elements discussed include everything in the previous volumes of the poetics strand, as well as the most advanced techniques that poets use when constructing their poems.

The book features poems by great poets such as Emily Dickinson, William Shakespeare, Percy Bysshe Shelley, Walt Whitman, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Dylan Thomas, William Blake, Sir Walter Scott, Edmund Spenser, Edgar Allen Poe, and Alfred Lord Tennyson.

The truth can be slippery, and students who complete this book will come away with an advanced sense of how poets have explored the concept of truth through their poetry.

Note: New to the second edition of this book are QR codes that link to audio of Michael Clay Thompson himself reading the poems in the book.
