Book Summary

4Practice for Literature contains 100 sentences taken from works of classic literature that give illuminating insights into how great writers achieve meaning, beauty, and depth in their writing. Using Michael Clay Thompson’s method of understanding sentences through four-level analysis, students will identify the parts of speech, parts of the sentence, phrases, and clauses in the sentences. Each sentence uses vocabulary from The Vocabulary of Literature and complements the grammar learned in The Grammar of Literature and the poetic devices studied in The Poetry of Literature. The sentences challenge students on points of grammar, vocabulary, poetics, and writing. This digital version includes a self-check feature that provides students with the correct answers, as well as comments on the sentences.

Book Opinions

  • Rigorous!

    By gburnett
    I am a homeschooler mom, and we switched to the digital versions of the practice workbooks. I love Michael Clay Thompson's literature instruction techniques; they are patient and meticulous. I give this digital iBook only four stars because the user interface is awkward. My daughter uses the iBook for PracticeTown, and it works so much better. Being able to pick up the parts of speech and plop them down where they need to go allows her to focus on the content of what she is learning instead of the mechanics of interacting with the book. For some reason that easy interface is absent in 4Practice, and the user has to type everything out. Much time is wasted with the space bar and enter key. I understand that older kids should be expected to type, but this interface is terribly clunky and, frankly, drives us nuts!
