The upper grades of Practice Sentences make a breath-taking addition to the Language Arts Curriculum by Michael Clay Thompson. The huge innovation is the extension of the method of four-level analysis, beyond grammar to vocabulary, poetics and writing. For this reason the advanced level volumes have been titled 4Practice. The intellectual demands are, of course rigorous, but what makes them so pedagogically compelling is their breadth of reference. In 4Practice Volume I, Michael Thompson has produced 100 sentences about the ancient world of the Greeks and Romans. Each sentence uses vocabulary from Word within the Word I, complements the grammar learned in Magic Lens I and the poetic devices studied in Poetry and Humanity. Each sentence challenges students on points of grammar, vocabulary, poetics and writing, and the content of many sentences will propel students to reference works to understand the context. The focus on the ancient world emphasizes the importance of classical Greek and Latin to modern English. The practice books have fully-annotated Teacher Manuals with the correct answers filled in and comments on the sentences.
