Thanks for taking the time to help build a database of literature for concurrent enrollment instructors (or anyone else who might find this useful). A few notes: 1. The dropdown menus are somewhat simplistic. However, those parameters have been defined with the nature of a specific course in mind. If a text doesn't fit nicely in one of the categories, use your best judgment. 2. Please do not delete anything someone else has added. You may provide questions/comments within a cell if you think the information already provided is incorrect. You may also add information to cells when appropriate. 3. Don't worry too much if you don't know whether something belongs in the columns for literary style and ideas for unit construction. There will be some overlap here. As this document evolves, I'll use feedback from concurrent enrollment instructors in order to make editing decisions, but even if I have to move some of your information, you've still provided a great deal of help by providing the information itself. Thanks again! --Eric Doise
