Book Trunks

These book trunks are traveling resources for teacher development centered on different themes. Try it before you buy it! The rules:

Trunks are for professional development use only. Not for student use.

There are 4 borrowing periods:

  • Sept. 1 to Oct. 31
  • Nov. 15 to Jan. 15
  • Feb. 1 to March 31
  • April 15 to June 15

The borrowing period factors in the time to ship it to you and the time to return it. So you will in fact only have the trunk for a period of approximately 5 weeks. This window must be respected in order to allow other members to access the trunks, and for ATEQ to ensure all the materials are returned and in good condition in between shipments.

This is the updated list of trunks that are now available to borrow:

  1. Poetry Picks 
  2. The Write Trunk 
  3. All Young Adult 
  4. Residential Schools & Resistance 
  5. Reluctant Readers 
  6. Genre Picks 
  7. Early Literacy 
  1. Elementary Strategies 
  2. War and Survival 
  3. Non-Fiction
