We've changed our BAV student materials to a sturdy, bound notebook to give you a lower price and a more durable format. Instead of using loose-leaf pages, teachers can now give each student this colorful notebook that follows the six-step method for teaching academic vocabulary.
There is space for more terms, and students can add new information as their understanding of the terms deepens and matures throughout the year. Plus, teachers have more flexibility to assign each of the five color-coded sections of the notebook to a different subject area.
(ASCD book, 2008) 8 1/2" x 11", 160 pages, drilled with holes for 3-ring binder insertion (optional).
