*The booklet is printed in landscape, half-page size. A single booklet should be printed according to the individual directions for the printer (do not use booklet settings as the booklet is already pre-formatted). With many printers, the teacher may print odd pages, reorder the pages print side up, replace in the paper tray, and then print even pages to achieve a double-sided proof set. Check pagination and print using double-sided printer settings. Students may do the single fold required and staple their books in class. A packet is included as an alternative to the smaller booklet.
