This is a great resource if what you want is instructions to make all purpose foldables for notebooks. I thought it would have more ideas for different uses for those foldables. There are several suggestions, but I wanted more examples and perhaps some printed instead of generic foldables. My guess is that I ordered the wrong product. I also ordered the Informational Text book and it's much more what I was looking for.

I attended a workshop at my district and had to have this book. The day I got it, I gave my students the Cause and Effect foldable to place on their notebook. All students could use these tools to help them comprehend informational text.

This book gave me ideas on how to ask comprehensible questions for science or math. The ideas in the book are great.
