There are always little things that can slow down the release of a book, but it looks like the long anticipated release of Nancy Boyle’s new book is coming closer. October remains the release month for the book, in plenty of time to put the 40 new lesson plans into use. I will try to answer some of the other questions I have been getting so districts and individuals can plan ahead. As far as budgeting, this book will cost more than Nancy’s other books as it has more features than past books. If you plan for $40 per book you should be safe; if it’s lower, all the better! The book addresses grade level 2-8, and ties in with both trade books and RTI. As with all of Nancy’s books, it will have an easy to use format and be classroom tested. On Friday December 4th, 2009 ALRAN Books will host Nancy at Lombardo’s conference center in Randolph, Mass for a one day conference where Nancy will talk predominantly about the information in this book. Let us know if you’d like to attend – we’d love to see you there!
