We can send certain of our smaller lessons and supplements at no cost (except
shipping) to a fellow teacher who has a likely classroom use. We grant
permission to the requesting teacher to use/duplicate the material in his/her own classroom setting.
We also grant the recipient permission to duplicate the item and share it liberally with colleagues within the same building
as long as credit is
given to Teacher's Press.
Developed at different times and for different purposes, the nature of
the complimentary material (listed below) varies greatly. Some items are
described in more detail at another location on this site.
