Anthem unit a la carte options:

TeachNovels units emphasize practicality and flexibility. My lessons minimize time spent on preparation and evaluation. They enable you to concentrate on delivering engaging instruction rather than making copies and grading piles of student work. I also strive to include a large variety of lessons, assignments, and assessments so that you can select what works for you.
