Suppliers & Distributors



Unless otherwise noted, these companies do not publish any of their own materials or actually produce curriculum and educational products. Instead, they merely sell resources from a wide variety of other outlets, serving as suppliers/distributors. As such, they have not been queried in regard to the Common Core Standards/Next Generation Science Standards/College, Career and Civic Life Framework (CCS/NGSS/C3). And to my knowledge, they all sell a wide variety of materials – whether independent, correlated, ancillarily connected, or explicitly aligned – without regard to any resource's CCS/NGSS/C3 status.

I provide this list as a helpful resource for those seeking suppliers beyond the publishers themselves and by way of noting why these entities have not been included on any of the main lists. For the few companies that do produce their own materials in addition to serving as distributors, I've also included their product lines on the appropriate CCS/NGSS/C3 alignment lists.
