I’ve had a few questions about where to find the CSEA booklets.
The books are (and always were) supposed to only be free for CSEA members.
NEW INFORMATION AS OF SUMMER 2018:
Unfortunately, CSEA materials are now only available to CSEA members.
OLD INFORMATION (PRIOR TO JUNE 2018):
PEF members are supposed to purchase the books from CSEA.
If you visit http://csealearningcenter.org, hard copies can be ordered on the online store or digital downloads are available if you sign up for online courses. Subscribing to the online courses is the ONLY legitimate way for PEF members to obtain digital copies of these booklets.
A few people have emailed me with links they found by searching on the internet. Some CSEA locals apparently make the booklets available on their websites without requiring member signin.
I obviously can’t control what you search or which links you visit, but I’m not doing anything to enable people to break copyright. Therefore, I will not condone sharing those links on this site or any sites I control.
