All of the source materials are reproducible for one family/class. Part 1 provides 39 articles for note-taking and summarizing (Units 1 & 2) and a "User Guide" - instructions for these articles which include the Flesch-Kincaid Reading Level, discussion questions, and assignments. Part 2 provides 30 story sequence sources for Unit 3 and a "Success Guide" for these stories that includes model outlines, tips for teaching students how to rewrite the stories, the Story Sequence Chart and helps for teaching through it. Part 3 provides 41 mini-books source material for Units 4 & 6. Part 4 provides 19 pictures for Unit 5 along with teaching procedures and suggested outlines and stories.
