PDFs: large font resulting in 50-page print-outs

Hannah at NWCC 7 months ago updated by Arthur Lawson (Answers in Genesis - Web Support Analyst) 7 months ago 2

One point of feedback is that although the lessons are easily accessed on a phone or tablet (including links to resources, which is a nice feature), when a lesson is selected for printing, PDF or direct to printer, the font sizes are quite large. This results in each lesson requiring about 50 single-sided pages. Also, if printed to a PDF, there are no document margins, which makes the PDF more difficult to work with.

If you are teaching directly from the ABC lesson, with no modifications, then this may be a good option for those with the ability to use their phone. I prefer to use the scanned lessons on my iPad where I can mark up the lessons with my Apple Pencil, insert pages, highlight, etc. This helps me to organize my thoughts and to stay on track while teaching. Is there a way to reformat the PDFs to make them easier to work with when prepping for a lesson?

Hello Hannah,

I checked on your ABC Digital classes and saw your Grades 4-5 and PreK-1 classes are currently on Unit 6, Lesson 58. Provided that is correct, I have included the current and next unit's Teacher guide PDFs for your use. If you need any more files, please let me know!

Grades 4-5 Units 6-7 Teacher guides:

16-1-121_U6_G4-5_Teacher.pdf
16-2-121_U7_G4-5_Teacher.pdf

PreK-1 Units 6-7 Teacher guides:

16-1-101_U6_PreK-1_Teacher.pdf
16-2-101_U7_PreK-G1_Teacher.pdf

We will be adding the Teacher Guide Unit PDF in lesson 1 of each unit. Units 14 and onward will have them, and we will be going back and adding them to Units 1-13 as well.

Blessings,

Arthur

Good Afternoon Hannah,

Thank you for your feedback! I have submitted your request to my Development team. One option that may help you would be making sure the print scale is set to 'fit the paper' when printing the downloaded PDFs.

That being said, we are planning on adding pre-formatted PDFs of the lessons that will look exactly like the printed books. But this is still in the works and may be available after the full release of ABC Digital.

Please let us know if you have any further questions! 

Blessings,

Ben Sherrick
