Appendixes to the handbook contain 22 teacher resource sheets, a reference and resource list, and answers to the self-checks. Included among the topics addressed in the individual resource sheets are introducing textbooks, words with general and technical meanings, reading symbols, directions for constructing crossword puzzles, constructing sight word exercises for content lessons, basic phonics instruction, signals for thought patterns, and reading technical materials.
