Engage and Inspire

Fall is right around the corner! Soon classrooms will be full, and you’ll be working your magic to engage and inspire another crop of students. At Townsend Press, we want to help. That’s why we’ve released three new features in the Learning Center (more are coming).

— What’s New for Fall 2017 —

What’s So Special about Townsend Press?

We’re Independent.

Townsend Press is owned and operated by educators. Our loyalty is not to corporate interests, but to students and to teachers.

We’re Focused.

Townsend Press has one focus: producing the best possible English and Language Arts materials. That focus is what makes our content better.

Our Materials Work.

Educators tell us what studies confirm: that our materials effectively teach reading, writing, grammar, and vocabulary. Try us and you’ll see.

We Give Back.

We produce and print all our content locally in the U.S. We donate a substantial portion of profits to a variety of non-profit programs seeking to improve education. Why? Because we believe it’s the right thing to do.
