New collections make lesson planning a breeze

Check out our new Reading Support Collections. The collections feature high-interest titles, and each comes with access to a free downloadable teacher’s guide. You read that right—totally free!

U.S. Secretary of Education Margaret Spellings recently reported that there has been a decline in SAT reading scores for the second year in a row. There has never been a better time to try new things to reach your students.

And there are so many ways to use these collections in your school:

  • Download Teacher’s Guides and store the files until ready for printing.
  • Save Teacher’s Guide files to CD-ROM and stored with the audiobook package.
  • Distribute copies of Guide for Independent Reading or Group Reading time to keep students on task.
  • Use the Teacher’s Guides as a basis for lesson plans, or just use parts for special projects or tests.
  • Administrators and department heads: purchase the audio collection, then distribute Teacher’s Guides to teachers by email.

Each Teacher’s Guide is ready to hand out and includes:

  • a book summary written to get students interested without giving away plot ending
  • a short author bio
  • a list of themes discussed in the book
  • Warm-Up questions to get students thinking about themes
  • Questions to answer while listening and reading, keeping students on task
  • Creative, cross-curricular Extending the Lesson projects
  • Critical thinking questions
  • Two assessments—one multiple choice and one short answer (with answer key)

Check out the new Reading Support Collections here. We’re still updating and we plan on adding lots more of these, so look for more in upcoming catalogs.

As always, Teacher’s Guides can still be ordered in print form for only $1.25 each. How will you use these new collections in your school? What else would you like online access to from Recorded Books? Let us know!
