MCT Language Arts Curriculum, Level 2, The Town Level

MCT Language Arts Curriculum, Level 2, The Town Level Series Cover

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: Classical Education Edition: Student Book Cover

The Classical Education Edition of Caesar's English I is filled with so many extra elements that the book is too large to be handled easily by children. We ultimately decided to publish the student book in two parts at 192 pages each. 

A principal aim of the book is to teach children important vocabulary while giving them wide-ranging insight into the ancient world and its contributions to our lives.

Michael Clay Thompson has designed this book to reinforce the entire language arts curriculum; every strand of the curriculum is revisited in each of the twenty lessons. 

The vocabulary component is based on the Latin stems and the lists of nonfiction words made from those stems, as well as lists of advanced words and classic words. There are analogies, synonyms, antonyms, and word searches. Vocabulary is loaded into all the activities, and there are new vocabulary terms added to the stem lessons: five new words in each lesson.

The writing component is present in each lesson with numerous examples of how the great writers have used the vocabulary words. Specific writing activities include paragraph-writing assignments, which parallel those in Paragraph Townthe writing book at this level, as well as exercises in which students rewrite the sentences of great authors. Other sections provide short introductions to major authors whose works are used in the examples.

The lessons have been divided into quarters to reflect the four levels of grammar analysis as taught in Grammar Town, the gammar component at this level. Through every set of five lessons, a different level of grammar analysis is emphasized, so the first five are devoted to the parts of speech, the next five to the parts of the sentence, then phrases, and finally clauses. 

The poetics, which use techniques described in Building Poems, the poetry book at this level, are enhanced by a poem written by Michael in every lesson. Using the vocabulary words of the lesson, his poems offer students a perspective on the Roman world through the eyes of one of its denizens.

Insight into the Roman world is enhanced by more than 80 full-page photographs taken by Dr. Thomas Kemnitz of Roman sites and artifacts. 

In addition, the book includes: 

  • Concentration on the links between English and Spanish, highlighting the Spanish cognates of the English vocabulary that the students are learning. Myriam Thompson has translated some of MCT’s poems into Spanish, and bold type is used to emphasize the cognates. She also writes about the importance of Iberia to the Roman world and provides biographies of some of the Roman emperors born there. 
  • Perspective on the feminine experience in Rome. MCT says, "We have tried to pay some attention to this dimension of the text. There are images of Roman women, there is a poem from a mother's point of view, there are images of jewelry that Roman women wore, and there are poems about art and culture. The difficult thing about looking at Roman history is that most of the famous names are men, and most of the famous events are battles or assassinations (think Caesar). But we have tried to give a bit of a rounded perspective."
  • A ten-part biography of Julius Caesar using the words from the vocabulary lessons.  
  • Fifteen essays by Thomas Milton Kemnitz on Roman buildings; the use, styles, and making of columns; the Roman use of concrete and its importance; Roman roads; and the Roman handling of water, including aqueducts, lead pipes to houses, fountains, and the Roman baths.

You can read more about the background to these books and how they fit into classical education in two news items, the Roman link and the Ancient Greek link.

This book is printed in black and white, but there is a full color version available here.

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.
