In order to meet our teachers’ needs, we also provide our content in a variety of formats. Our eBook format is geared towards teachers who need content fast. Teachers can download our content, print or share directly with their students, and start teaching within minutes.

How to Use an eBook Lesson Plan

To start, search our website for the lesson plan you want to purchase. Select “eBook - .PDF” from the “Choose Your Version” section of the product page. Then add it to your cart. Bonus, there’s no shipping cost for eBook downloads. Upon completion of the checkout process, you will be taken to a page to download your product. You will also receive an email with your download link. Depending on your internet connection and the size of the PDF, the download will happen within minutes. Typically, the download will automatically appear in your “Downloads” folder on your computer.

Now you can share the resource with your students. Print the pages you wish to use as Student Handouts, and store your complete eBook file on your computer desktop for unlimited teaching in the future. For virtual learning, share a copy of the PDF with your students. The eBook format will be a PDF. This can be viewed on most devices, including tablets and Smartphones. You may require a free PDF reader, like Adobe Reader DC in order to open the document.

The eBook version of our lesson plans is laid out the same as our traditional print book versions. Therefore, you will already be familiar with the layout and can refer to the provided Teacher Guide for best practices when using the lesson plan.
