Any good company will send you copies of different grade level books to
preview. When my school was going to purchase a series through Davis
Publications (Adeventures in Art Series) for grades 3-6, Davis sent us
copies for free of the different levels of the student books. Since I
had extra copies I keep one copy of each grade level at home to help
with my planning plus I have extra copies of the teachers manuals too.
If you can do this you will be surprised how often I use them at home.
Sick days etc. I'm happy with the Adventures in Art the reading levels
seem to fit my students. I often substitute different projects for the
different units. I also have the studio workbooks and flash cards. The
flash cards are nice for the end of a class when you have a few extra
minutes to review artists, vocabulary, etc. The workbooks have masters
that you can copy for the different lessons. They are useful also. Do
I use the series for all my lessons. No. But when I want something
special to go with a concept I often use the series. Plus they are
great for substitute teacher plans. The teacher's manual is very handy
for the substitute.
Hope this is helpful.
