In the case of this series, the sum is definitely more than the total of its parts. As the most important Latin and Greek roots are studied, students increase their vocabularies far more than the 240 words actually presented, since these roots form the basis for many additional words. Roots are grouped thematically in worktexts, with each of the sixteen lessons in every book introducing up to 15 words derived from two or more classical roots. Each lesson begins with a "root dictionary". The root and root forms are shown and defined in bold type, followed by English word(s) derived from that root. Each English word is shown in dictionary format with pronunciation key, definition(s) and word forms each followed by a sentence showing correct word usage in context. Small side boxes list additional words that are formed from the same root. A variety of exercises based on synonyms, antonyms, analogies, vocabularies in context, and sentence completion are provided at the end of lessons to insure mastery. The many literary, historical and geographical references are designed to increase the student's cultural literacy. After every two lessons, a creative or expository writing assignment is suggested, using words from the lessons , allowing the student to put into practice the words he's learned.

Answers are available in the answer key, but if you want a little more help, opt for the Teacher Key. The Teacher Key is a valuable resource, as it complements, extends, and enriches the series. It provides tips for individual learning needs and shows how to ensure that students are building upon earlier skills. It gives support for every lesson, provides blackline masters to reinforce key words, gives additional review activities and vocabulary games, and includes a glossary and answer key for the student books.

A test booklet (with answers) is available. You get a lot of educational value for your money here. This series would be beneficial to parents too - especially those that didn't attend parochial school or study the classical languages!

If Ive never used this curriculum, is it wise to start in the 9th grade?
A shopper on Jul 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you can start C in 9th grade. My caution: if your child is not a strong reader or has trouble spelling, start with A or B. Otherwise, C is fine. I used it in a combined 8-12 grade class this year.My other caution: the tests. They include information on novels or historical issues that give clues to answers. If students don’t have background in those areas, the clues are irrelevant. And students may feel they are not smart as a result. My assistant teacher and I wrote our own tests that used everyday speech and situations where the vocab words could come into play more easily.
Based on the sample pages, it appears that the teacher's guide is geared toward classroom teachers. How useful is it for homeschool teachers (other than the answer key, which can be purchased separately)?

BEST ANSWER: Never noticed that you could buy the Answer Key separately. We homeschool and use the teacher's guide to this series for all the exercises. We do these books orally and I quote the "Literary and Historical References" as they come up in the exercise. Those references are only in the teacher's guide. Also, some of the activities are appropriate for homeschooling, though many are worded as if there is a class of students. At the back there is a light worksheet/quiz for each lesson that we use for review even after we've finished one book and moved on to the next. I love this series, and I get the teacher's guide for every level.
