- (11) 6-Month Video Library Subscriptions: Authentic classroom videos, organized by CLASS dimension, that feature real teachers interacting effectively with their students
- (11) CLASS Dimensions Guides: A printed booklet that describes and reinforces the domains and dimensions that make up the CLASS framework
