and building a classroom library can be difficult for a teacher. To help with that, we're offering the best discounts available, whether the teacher needs one copy or one hundred.
Smyrna, DE (PRWEB) September 2, 2008
This week, Prestwick House Inc., Delaware's Premier Educational Publisher, is launching its first catalogue focused on teachers of students in grades 4-8. For more than 25 years, Prestwick House has served high school teachers by developing and distributing high-quality books and teaching materials for educators across the country. This new catalogue will provide middle and upper-elementary-grade teachers with a wide variety of new and high-quality educational products.
Prestwick House is anchoring the Middle Grades Catalogue with a new series of vocabulary books for grades 4-6, Growing Your Vocabulary: Learning from Latin and Greek Roots that builds on Prestwick House's success in developing some of the most popular high school vocabulary programs available. Based on an organization emphasizing word families, Growing Your Vocabulary uses the most effective techniques to help students learn new words and the skills needed to improve their vocabulary. "We're keenly aware of the different ways that students learn at different grade levels, so we were careful to design these books with younger students in mind," says Paul Moliken, Senior Editor. "We're confident that once teachers see these books, they'll quickly become the most popular vocabulary books available." The first of these books is currently at the printer scheduled to be available by September 5.
The Prestwick House Middle Grades Book Center is also aiming to become the premier source of paperback books for these grade levels by providing over 500 of the most popular middle school paperback titles at 25% or more off of the cover price. "We know that school budgets are tight," says VP of Operations, Jason Scott, "and building a classroom library can be difficult for a teacher. To help with that, we're offering the best discounts available, whether the teacher needs one copy or one hundred."
To supplement this large variety of paperbacks, Prestwick House is re-introducing Prestwick PowerPacks to their line of reproducible teaching guides and expanding distribution of Teaching Units and Response Journals for popular classroom favorites such as Shiloh and Bridge to Terabithia. Prestwick House has the widest variety of literature teaching guides in the country with over 700 books of ready-to-use activities for teachers.
150,000 copies of the new Prestwick House Middle Grades Book Center catalogue will begin reaching targeted schools and teachers during the first week of September to coincide with the return of teachers to classrooms across the country. This introductory catalogue builds off of information gained from tests done over the last few years and will increase Prestwick House's penetration into one of the most valuable markets in education. "This is an exciting time for us," says Scott. "It will open up many new opportunities for us in the future."
