    I'm just wondering if anyone has ever used Secondary Solutions to create units or lesson plans? I'm looking at their website and a lot of the books they offer seem very interesting, but I'm wondering if it's worth it for the price.

    Has anyone used this and can give me their honest opinion?

    One of our teachers ordered some stuff over the summer for The Hunger Games. It looks neat.

    Last year was my first year teaching at an alternative school. I am the only English teacher in the building, and the two campuses that feed into us are often not very helpful. I bought a few things over the course of the year from Secondary Solutions. I found them to be very thorough (I never used everything included - not enough time!) and helpful. This year I plan to incorporate some of the SecSol stuff I bought last year, but essentially build my own plans for novels and such. They really help if you're in a time crunch or just at a loss for how to start/finish/etc.

    I've noticed they have a few buying options n the site--a PDF file you can download, a book that can be mailed to you, or both. Which one did you get? I'm trying to decide whats the best deal.
