For Teachers

Teacher Materials:

Lesson Overviews

Each lesson in the teacher’s edition comes with a lesson overview page for instructors with boxes in the margins that provide quick reference to lesson goals. The overview describes in detail the skills taught in the lesson as well as additional information that may be necessary to complete the lesson. Lesson related links for further study are also supplied with each overview page.

Presentation Notes

Each student lesson comes with a PowerPoint presentation that provides an overview of the lesson including concepts, the skills covered, and the study area involved. The teacher’s manual is supplemented with detailed descriptions and commentary for each slide allowing a diverse range of instructors to lead classroom lecture.


Lessons will conclude with a full page color layout of a successfully completed exercise. If questions are presented within a lesson, the teacher’s manual includes answers to those questions.
