Teacher Created Materials develops innovative and imaginative materials and services for students, worldwide. Everything we do is created by teachers, for teachers and students, to make teaching more effective and learning more fun.
Once upon a time in 1977...Rachelle Cracchiolo started Teacher Created Materials with a friend and fellow teacher. Both were eager to share their ideas and passion for education with other classroom leaders. What began as a hobby, selling lesson plans to local stores, became a part-time job after a full day of teaching, and eventually blossomed into a nonstop opportunity to develop and grow Teacher Created Materials as a full-service company, and a welcome and familiar name in every classroom. The story continued in 2004 with the launch of Shell Education and the introduction of professional resources and classroom application books designed to support Teacher Created Materials curriculum resources. Today, Teacher Created Materials is one of the most recognized names in educational publishing around the world...and the story continues educationally ever after.

I have never purchased a more thoughtful, well-developed book than Teaching with Text Sets. The book walks the reader through what text sets are, how to build your own text set, and even provides an extensive annotated list of possible texts for units of study on immigration, the solar system, the great depression, and other resources you can include in your own text set. My students LOVE getting the opportunity to branch away from traditional textbook instruction, and it shows in their test scores. You can't afford to NOT buy this product. And given the current state of educational funding, the authors show teachers how teaching with text sets can be more affordable than traditional curriculum resources! I love this book.
