    Spine books for Classic Year 4

    Hi!

    I'm considering using Classic Year 4 this year, but am wondering what books are used as spine books, or books that are used more than 2 or 3 weeks throughout the year. Can anyone tell me this? Before I buy it, I want to be sure that the books used with the Classic are available to me through my library or for purchase.

    Thank you so much!

    Use the Bookshelf Central search to see ALL the recommended books. Pay attention to multi-week or multi-year listings!

    Thanks, Marcia! Will the entries for Year 4 Dialectic on Bookshelf Central tell me if they are the same books used for Classic? My fear is that the spine books have changed with the Redesigned version, and that only the Redesigned version books are now sold via Bookshelf Central (which would make sense to me). If that's the case, I won't know what books are used for Classic and whether I can get a hold of them. And I don't want to buy Classic Y4 until I'm sure I can get the books. I don't see on Bookshelf Central entries where it says whether the book is used for Classic or Redesigned or both.

    Thanks again!

    Hi,
    No, Bookshelf Central is specifically geared to Redesigned, so the website doesn't reflect if books are used in both versions of the curriculum. The biggest change that affected books from Classic to Redesign is that we spread out the Reading Assignment Charts into two pages in Redesigned, so that there is a "primary" and "alternates" list. We only recommend the people purchase those that fall in the "primary" list, as they are the ones that we worked from when creating the Accountability and Thinking Questions. So, if books are a big concern for you, I'd encourage you to get the Redesigned version. LOTS of the Classic titles are there (almost all of them, in fact), but they are usually alternates.

    Hope this helps a bit!
