Teachers Get a Great Deal on 2007-2008 Blue Books
Get 2007-2008 Oregon Blue Books to use as textbooks in your classroom. They’re just $10.00 per case of 20 books, plus shipping. How many cases do you need to make a classroom set?
Hurry! Very few 2007-2008 Blue Books were printed, and now fewer than 100 boxes remain, and at these prices we expect they’ll be gone by mid-June.
Avoid shipping costs by arranging to have your books picked up in Salem. Otherwise, add $16.00 per box for UPS shipping.
What is the Oregon Blue Book? It’s the Oregon fact book and almanac published every two years since 1911 by the Secretary of State’s office. It contains everything you ever wanted to know about Oregon’s economy, executive, legislative & judicial branches, election history, state history, public education, all 242 cities and 36 counties, and government finance. The Almanac section lists facts such as highest mountains, longest rivers, state bird, state shell, Oregon’s Olympic medal winners and renewable energy plants, and so much more.
The on-line Oregon Blue Book: http://bluebook.state.or.us is updated daily and has enhanced resources for teachers and school children – take a look at the Kids tab and the Notable Oregonians section under the Facts tab.
Teachers tell me they use the hard copy version along with the on-line version to teach students how to do research. The Elections section is popular for this.
Act now before they’re all gone!
