- What kinds
of related guides, books, Web sites, and other resources accompany
Many of our video series, libraries, and workshops have coordinated
guides and textbooks; some of them have additional printed
readers, audiocassettes, and other special materials. You
may order single copies of these coordinated materials here
online or by calling 1-800-LEARNER. If you are ordering multiple
copies for course adoption purposes, however, we will refer
you to the original publisher of the books and other materials,
because Annenberg Learner is the "publisher" only of
the videos. Please note that prices for these coordinated
books and other materials are set by individual publishers,
not by Annenberg Learner.
Free, related Web sites are available here online by clicking
on the button youll find on the left-hand side of the
Web page where the videos are described. These special Web
sites for our videos are freely open to visitors, and do not
require special "user IDs" or "passwords."

examination copies, or teachers editions you are seeking.
