In a constant effort to offer ongoing cutting edge resources, CoreStand selects news events that publishers can connect lessons to. What could be better—current, aligned lessons that are guaranteed to engage students in a way that no textbook can? These resources receive extra highlighting as they are always featured on the home page, and when the current events change, the lessons will still be available for purchase in our database.
Once your work is submitted, the team at CoreStand will examine it, making sure it is a) generally appropriate to grade level and standard b) generally devoid of mechanical, grammatical or typographical errors which interfere with understanding or usage, and c) provides enough detail to make it usable for the purchaser.
If your resource covers more than one subject area, you may submit it in both areas. Be sure to include the words “interdisciplinary” in your description so customers searching for these materials will find them more easily.
We at CoreStand believe that you should benefit from any business you personally bring in. Therefore, for every “Subscription” membership that is referred by you, you will receive 5.00 USD.
