Selecting Book Publications for Schools

Selecting Book Publications For Schools

Some of the best publishing companies print out textbooks and other reading material that are based on specific language comprehension. For example, multiple editions of a single textbook may be published for a particular grade. After all, students in the same grade may have different reading abilities. Therefore, book publishers take into consideration the various comprehension skills of all students of a certain age group. Students that have relatively weak reading skills are encouraged to use books that have extra footnotes and illustrations. The vocabulary and context of particular subject are presented differently in multiple editions of a single textbook. Guided reading in the classroom is done by teachers that help students to read assigned material. A teacher may ask a student to read text from a book out loud.

Teachers of primary and secondary schools are encouraged to shop around for textbooks and books from the most reputable publishers. These days, online shops make it easy for educators to preview the books that will be used in the classroom. For example, multiple preview pages can be digitally downloaded onto a computer or tablet device. Teachers have the chance to compare different editions of a textbook before making bulk orders. Sometimes, free digital copies are available for download when multiple orders on hardcover books are made. Therefore, a teacher may refer to a computer or tablet device while teaching a lesson. However, students are usually encouraged to bring in the actual books to class instead of relying on e-book versions.

Welcome to the Cover Reveal for

The Night House by Rachel Tafoya

presented by Month9Books!

Be sure to enter the giveaway found at the end of the post!

Bianca St. Germain works at a Night House, a place where vampires like the aristocratic Jeremiah Archer, pay to feed on humans, and she doesn’t much care what others think of her. The money is good, and at least there, she’s safe. Bianca also doesn’t care that the Night House is killing her. All she cares about is: nauth, the highly addictive poison in vampire bites that brings a euphoria like no drug ever could.

But when Bianca meets James, a reclusive empath who feels everything she does, for the first time, she considers a life outside of the Night House and a someone worth living for. But Jeremiah has decided to keep Bianca for himself; he won’t allow her to walk away.

As she allows her feelings for James to grow, she struggles to contain nauth's strong hold on her life. If they are to have a future, James must make her see what she's worth, what she means to him, before Jeremiah and nauth claim her for good.
