High School Supplement: Teacher Edition (Digital)
Lead a class of high school students confidently! Your Teacher Edition of the High School Supplement will have the legal content students have in their High School Supplements, but you will also have guidance on leading class discussions and many other resources that help you help them.
The chapters are titled the same as those in the Student Worktext, but the material taught goes well beyond that and is designed to challenge high school students. You can choose to add that content as you finish each chapter in the Worktext, or you can save the high school content for when you've covered everything in the Worktext.
