The 36 lessons in the Student Workbook each focus on a spelling rule, pattern, or origin. Level G, Grade 7 covers vowels; words with French derivations; Latin roots; suffixes: ial, ious, al, ally, ic, ically, ly, able, ible; words from geography, science, math, history, and business; words with Spanish derivations; and more.
The course is organized around a test-study method. Students take a pretest, self-correct and rewrite words, study through the practice exercises, and take a final test. Student lessons include fun riddles and puzzles, and conclude with a wrap-up and review; cumulative reviews of multiple chapters are also provided.
The Teacher's Edition provides a 3-day and 5-day schedule; activities for reinforcing spelling patterns; example dictation sentences for the lessons' pretest and final test; bonus words; review lessons; tips for ESL learners; a writer's corner; and take-it home masters. Reduced black-and-white copies of the student pages have the correct answers overlaid; teaching notes are provided in the margins. The scope & sequence follows MCP's "Plaid Phonics" so curriculum can be correlated. Objectives state the goal of each lesson.
Level G corresponds to Grade 7. 2002 Revised Edition.
