Share Your Teaching Videos With Us!

Calling all teachers! You might have heard about the Integrated Print and Digital Solution, our NEW digital teaching platform for teaching handwriting with our student editions to Transitional K–4 students. We think your unique ability to help young learners master handwriting would be a perfect addition to the Integrated Print and Digital Solution's live teaching video library.

             - One license for you and your classroom or practice

             -  Five licenses to share with your colleagues
