Welcome to the 1999-2000 Academic Decathlon season!

This year's theme is: "Looking Forward: Creating the Future," with the Super Quiz topic being "Sustainable Earth."

In this new U.S.A.D. Materials Brochure, you will find all the materials you need to participate and compete successfully in the Academic Decathlon.

All the resources you and your students need - the OFFICIAL MATERIALS OF THE ACADEMIC DECATHLON - are contained in these pages. Curriculum specialists and U.S.A.D. test writers develop our materials. You won't find better quality or more focused materials anywhere else.

This year, in response to requests from hundreds of coaches from across the country, we are giving you more for less. More curriculum. More practice tests. And less money in absolute dollars!

For the first time ever, we are providing a complete and integrated Academic Decathlon curriculum - a curriculum guide in each subject area. Check out The Curriculum Box. It contains ALL you need to compete - including a Practice Test Booklet and FREE Study Guide and outlines.

Want more practice test items? Check out The Practice Test Box ­ 4500 test items on CDs and printouts written by the official test writers of Academic Decathlon exams.

And we are pleased to unveil the launch of our fully operational Online Testing Environment (OTE) - which includes 14 tests (2 per subject area) with a built-in diagnostic tool to assess student performance.

New coaching materials include The CPS Evaluation Guide and The Higher Order Thinking Skills Book.

Our bestsellers include flashcards, notebook dividers, and art slides.

For those schools purchasing materials for more than 9 team members, quantity discounts are available.

We look forward to receiving your order, to serving you with the highest possible standards, and to an exciting Academic Decathlon season. Best wishes for a great year of fun, learning, and coaching!

Sincerely,
James Alvino, Ph.D., Executive Director
