34 lessons. Each lesson includes a list of 20 "New Words" and 5 "Review Words," except every sixth lesson, which is completely review.

The main emphasis of this course is the study of Latin word elements—roots, prefixes, and suffixes. Learning to spell is the primary goal throughout, and the meanings of roots and affixes are helpful in expanding a student's vocabulary.

Each lesson also has a review section that exercises phonetic and word-building concepts covered in earlier grade levels of this series. The last section of each lesson gives a brief history of the English language, providing some of the reasons for the modern spellings, pronunciations, and meanings of many English words.

A "Speller Dictionary" is included at the back of the book.

The teacher's manual includes a reduced copy of the pupil's text with the answers, teacher helps, and test sentences in the margins.
