Michael Clay Thompson’s vocabulary program begins at the elementary level with Building Language, Caesar's English I, and Caesar's English II. These books can be used as stand-alones or as part of a vocabulary program for young students. They also set the stage as preparatory complements to the more advanced The Word Within the Word series.

Building Language introduces students to the concept of Latin stems as the foundation for English academic language. Learning the meanings of the stems allows children to figure out the meanings of many other words that contain those same stems, even if the children have never seen those words before.

From this beginning, students move on to the Caesar's English books. Enhanced classical education editions of Caesar’s English I and Caesar's English II offer students an enriched learning experience. These editions are longer than the standard editions; in fact, they are so filled with extra elements, such as nonfiction essays, creative writings, and photographs, that the student books come in two separately bound parts. The implementation manual is also enhanced with a great deal more helpful instructional material. These editions are particularly appropriate for those pursuing a classical education, expanding the material devoted to the Roman context, including maps, biographical sections on Caesar, and a series of poems by Michael Clay Thompson. They also contain essays by Thomas Milton Kemnitz on Roman architecture, construction methods, roads, and buildings. The new sections are buttressed by more than a hundred photographs of the world that was Rome. 

Together, Building Language and the Caesar's English books:

  • Reveal the age of the English language with its Roman beginnings
  • Teach students the most prevalent Latin stems, providing an intellectual key for young students to understand that big words aren't necessarily hard
  • Discard the specious confines of teaching age-graded vocabulary, on the observation that even young children can give the species names of dinosaurs—clear proof that they can learn and understand bigger words than they are usually asked to learn
  • Aim to sow the seeds of intellectuality by introducing students to the drama and romance of ancient Rome, to the names of its thinkers, and to some of the fascinating facts of its history
  • Show Latin-English-Spanish connections
  • Develop a sense of anticipation about reading classic literature in the future. In all three volumes, the author has chosen examples of the use of words and their stems in the best sentences he could find—even if a sentence was from books likely to be read in high school rather than in elementary school. Included are authors such as Sir Walter Scott, Frances Hodgson Burnett, Kenneth Grahame, and Robert Louis Stevenson, but also the Brontës, Jane Austen, Defoe, Milton, Morrison, and Shelley

Read more about the classical editions.

The fourth book in the series is The Vocabulary of Literature, which highlights the vocabulary commonly used by the greatest authors of English and American literature. This book allows students to see the vocabulary they have been studying in the context of the fiction and nonfiction writings of immortal authors.

Michael Clay Thompson's vocabulary program at the secondary level contains three volumes of The Word Within the Word. This program, like the elementary program, uses etymology, not memorization. Latin and Greek stems are presented as a system of thinking, a way of building, analyzing, spelling, pronouncing, using, and choosing words. Consequently, students will know far more than the list of words encountered in this course—the tens of thousands of words that are not listed but that are expressions of the system.

The Word Within the Word series is complex, demanding, erudite, and witty. It is intended as a weekly effort, built on a cumulative basis from Volume I. Every test reinforces every list. Through constant review, students build ever-increasing familiarity. The program makes the costly, time-consuming, quick-fix/quick-forget tutorials of junior and senior high school things of the past.

The books also include historical essays written by Dr. Thomas Kemnitz about ancient Greece and Rome. The Word Within the Word I contains extra pages relating to the history of ancient Greece in the Classical Period (490-323 B.C.); The Word Within the Word II relates to the Roman Republic—i.e., Rome until the assassination of Julius Caesar in 44 B.C.; The Word Within the Word III covers the battle for control of Rome after the assassination of Caesar, as well as Rome’s development as a great manufacturing power. All three books include discussions, maps, timelines, and scores of photographs of ancient buildings, sculptures, and artifacts. 

To maximize the learning value of The Word Within the Word, the books are designed to work with The Magic Lens, a high-level grammar series by the same author.

Read about the interdisciplinary concept of The Word Within the Word program in an article by Michael Clay Thompson about his intention to interweave "the vocabulary of science, mathematics, history, literature, art, and other disciplines into a great vocabulary fabric that will make students better in every subject and prepare them for advanced college and professional vocabulary like no other curriculum ever has."
