Level 6 Complete– Lens II Level


The sixth level of the MCT language arts curriculum is extraordinarily challenging. The writing requirement is advanced; students are expected to be able to write academic essays, complete with citations and works cited. The grammar book, The Magic Lens II, explores the intricacies of how the English language is constructed through grammar. There are 500 stems in The Word Within the Word II that will enable students to understand words that they have never before encountered, as well as an engaging discussion of the beginnings of the ancient Roman Empire. Much of the grammar, vocabulary, and writing at this level is the foundation of many students’ perfect scores on the SAT. The poetics strand is both an important and a fun part of the curriculum. As with all levels, the students in mrT’s online classes will not only get the opportunity for live classes but also will see a good deal more in the way of images and explication than those simply using the texts.

During the second semester, mrT will be teaching the Fog Trilogy.
