Once you get to this area of the Ballenger Teachers Center and find either of those numbers, select a teacher's edition. These are the ones with a spiral binding. In most cases, each grade level will have between 6 and 8 units with each unit in a separate book. When you look inside the book, you may notice that the student edition of the Basal Reader is contained within the Teachers Edition. This is called a TWE or Teachers Wraparound Edition. Some of the texts may include Scope and Sequence charts in the teachers resource area at the end of the text, and newer textbook series will reference Common Core State Standards.
You may check out Basal Readers at the BTC desk or at the circulation desk on the south end of Booth Library.
