About Ordering Pre-printed Booklets

SERP has partnered with Goetz Printing, an on-demand printing service, to allow teachers, schools, and districts to purchase pre-printed WordGen Weekly, WordGen Elementary, SciGen, or SoGen ​materials for classrooms. These materials are identical to the materials available at the download center.

Goetz is the sole vendor for these pre-printed materials. Purchase orders are accepted. All billing is managed by Goetz.

About Free Student Access to Word Generation:

SERP also has created a separate Download Center for Students that does not require registration (due to privacy concerns).

Only PDFs of Individual Student Units are available there, but they can be easily downloaded to computers or tablets at home or at school.

Students with tablets may use PDF annotation apps such as Adobe Acrobat, PDF Expert, or Notability to mark up up the PDF documents. Many teachers have successfully made Word Generation paperless this way.
