About Studies Weekly and American Legacy Publishing
Traditional textbooks cost up to $80 per student. By contrast, the price of Studies Weekly can be as low as $6 per student per year, or about $47 over the 8-year time frame in which textbooks are expected to be used by schools. Studies Weekly subscriptions also include access to estudiesweekly.com, an interactive experience that offers research-based tools for teachers and rich learning opportunities for students.
Nationwide, 30 percent of elementary schools have at least one classroom using Studies Weekly for their core materials in social studies and/or science. Studies Weekly Publishing, continues to present these innovative instructional materials to boards of education for adoption in states where traditional textbooks have been the only option for decades.
"Too many schools are looking at their finances and seeing textbook costs as a major burden. This causes a lot of programs to atrophy as districts strive to save money," said Ed Rickers, president of Studies Weekly Publishing. "Studies Weekly offers a program with superior content that has saved some school districts millions of dollars. Because we have the flexibility of periodical publishing, Studies Weekly will always be relevant, timely and up to state education standards."
American Legacy Publishing enables teachers in every state and grade level to
teach 100 percent of their grade level's state standards with minimum
preparation and maximum success. The company publishes more than 70 unique
classroom periodicals- more than Weekly Reader, Scholastic News, Time FOR Kids
and Highlights Magazine combined. There are Studies Weekly publications
for Social Studies, Math, and Science education that are tailored and relevant
to the state in which the student lives. Printing in newspaper and magazine
format allows for changes in state standards and frequent updates with world,
national, and state current events that relate to their curriculum.
