Dr. Moore expressly wrote these workbooks for use with the McGuffey Readers and other specific materials published by Mott Media. They are available for grades one through four, with four books for each grade level. They provide clear daily lessons, regular reviews, quizzes, and a pull-out section containing a comprehensive test of mastery for the workbook. Answers for all assignments, quizzes, and tests are included. The general format provides a new lesson Monday through Thursday, with a test on these concepts on Friday. There are also periodic, multi-concept tests and a final test on all material presented in the workbook. Each workbook is designed to be completed in ¼ of the school year. Although students vary in ability and background, the Series number indicates the suggested grade level while the Book number indicates the quarter. Each workbook is keyed to one of the McGuffey Readers. As a child proceeds through the workbooks he/she is referred to the appropriate readings, lessons or exercises in the various texts. While some parents and teachers prefer to personally shepherd the progress of their students through the readers, others choose the guidance offered by our workbooks. The Classic Curriculum workbooks are designed to supplement the original version of the McGuffey Readers that are published only through Mott Media. Later versions of the McGuffey Readers are not the original text and the pages and lessons may not correspond to the references in the workbooks.
