Important notes for purchasing texts on your own

 

Ensuring the correct texts

Whether purchasing new or used or using a copy your family already has, please check the number on the back of the book (ISBN) to see that it matches.

Shopping online

We recommend a large seller such as Amazon or Barnes and Noble. They will likely have the required editions in stock, and they typically offer used as well as new copies.

Buying at a local bookstore

Although local booksellers may have many of the titles in stock, you will likely have to shop at more than one retailer and purchase some titles online. It is unlikely that the Vocabulary Workbooks or the Prestwick Editions will be found in stores.

May students bring used copies to class?

Yes, students may bring used copies to class.

What are the challenges of using previously-owned books?

Because teaching annotation skills and using annotations as part of regular classroom discussion, the responsibility falls on the student to evidence original annotations (i.e. using an agreed upon/teacher approved color of ink or symbol set) when annotations are graded.

May we purchase a different edition of the same title?

Because different editions usually have different page numbers, it makes it hard to follow along in class and keep up with the discussion. For this reason, we strongly discourage a different edition.

May students use a digital edition?

Yes. Students will need to make sure they always have digital access meaning the chromebook is charged and ready to go and that the digital format does not overly tempt them to do other things while using the chromebook.

Why is annotation important?

We are glad you asked! We invite you to click on the links below to learn more about why respected educators continue to propose annotation skills as a way to increase retention, understanding, and critical thinking.
