District Purchases and Multiple license discounts!

When I started teaching...about 400 years ago...the only resources we had were textbooks that someone else purchased that I rarely used, and a small budget to purchase sheet music and warm up books.


Times have changed, and they have changed fast.
 
I received the email below last week.  




We are looking at sight-singing methods for next year in our district. One thing that our district is having a question with is "Is there another way that this is published other than Teachers Pay Teachers?" I'm good either way, but if I can get the district to buy it, bonus!
Potential Buyer

I want to get S-Cubed Sight Singing Program into as many schools around the globe as possible, and I am very excited to get emails like this.  

Here are some of the ways I respond when I hear from folks who want this program for all of the schools and music teachers in their district.  

S-Cubed is a 21st-century textbook. Textbooks are part of the past. Young teachers realize that there are other ways to find resources. The textbooks that the district buys every few years often sit on the shelf.  Resourceful teachers are doing research and finding the answers they need as they work toward creating paperless classrooms.  


1) With the advent of Chromebooks, Ipads, and Smartboards, classrooms that use digital resources represent the future.
2) Textbooks are far more expensive than purchasing digital resources because you have to purchase many textbooks, and you have to do it every few years. With digital resources, that is not the case. And on TPT, each teacher gets all product updates for free after they purchase.
3) Digital resources offer things that textbooks cannot. In S-Cubed, teachers get specific lesson plans, video teaching tips to help teachers teach each lesson plan and video teaching examples of me teaching the actual lesson to my public school students...all by clicking a link. Textbooks can't do that.
 4) TPT offers a multi-license discount. A district can purchase the first copy of S-Cubed full price and then purchase the remaining copies for other teachers in the same district/school from 10%-50% off the original price.
The amount of the discount depends on the number of teachers for whom they are purchasing.    If they are considering purchasing S-Cubed for the district, have them contact me directly at inthemiddlewithmrd@gmail.com, and we will work out the details.
5)  S-Cubed was created by a real teacher in a real classroom. 
6)  S-Cubed has been vetted, rated and reviewed for four years by teachers who are using it all over the world.  


Lastly, it's gotten a lot easier to purchase with TpT for Schools!  Check it out and let your administrator know about S-Cubed!
