Last day to review is April 23!
If none of these times work for you, submit a review form on-line (available on the committee website).
In order to view the books on-line, follow the instructions on this page (editor's note; the SPS link is not working and I will try to get the correct one on Monday.)
[NOTE: There is a problem with the HoughtonMifflin/ThinkCentral portal. I've e-mailed tech support to see if there's a workaround. It only lets you log in once, then you have to reboot your computer to log in again.] Once inside, click the Resources tab. Do not try to review all the books!
Here are the actual books that students would physically see:
Math in Focus Student Edition, G2 = Second Grade math book, for example Go Math! Student Edition, G2 = Second Grade math book, for example enVision/Pearson = click on Student Edition
When filling out the review form, please include comments. That will greatly increase your impact on the committee's final decision, which takes place on April 25. Thanks, and happy reviewing!
