  • "The new formatting is attractive and interesting and I believe that it will be appealing to the students. The outcomes (objectives) of each lesson are well written and easy to understand. The amount of text is not overwhelming to students who are "non-readers" and I like the fact that the paragraphs are small, and much of the information is bulleted. The graphics are eye-catching and add to the manuscript… I love the reference to Google maps, as this is a free resource with the Internet. I like the references to the Office Features…The emphasis of the "21st Century Skills" is a wonderful feature! There is significant interest in this area. Likewise the information on organizations is a nice feature, and addresses our state standards. I also like the activities to help prepare for competitions (BPA and FBLA) events. One of our state standards is knowledge of student organizations and this would help to meet that standard. It would also be very valuable in actual preparation for a competition."
