Default page layout for teacher guide

Yes, you could do this, but it would require two separate documents. The
numbering is a fairly trivial issue (provided you don't want a TOC), but
keeping the notes synchronized with the text would be problematic.

The page numbering with a TOC can be simple if you are willing to be
unorthodox. Number one of the documents and include a TOC. In the
other document have no numbers (or numbers like "Comments for Page
{PAGE}") and blank pages to match the TOC space. Your document gets
numbers that increment by one for every "text" page, i.e. for every
two physical pages.

But keeping the notes scynched with the text is still a killer.

Many thanks for that. It makes perfect sense. We had a
discussion about this earlier and a number of my
colleagues came up with a different take on the
requirement. Basically, they have suggested that we think
about printing on both sides of the page. Lets assume we
have the student guide open. They want to have the
instructor notes on the left hand page and the course
notes on the right hand page. In the students version,
the instructor notes would be replaced by a lined page
which would allow them take notes.
I think this is a really good solutuion but i see a
couple of real problems. The text flow between the pages
in the guide would be a problem. In terms of pagination
the instructional content would have to flow from say
page 23 to page 25 for example. Page 24 in this example
would be taken up with the instructor notes or the
student note taking page. i dont know if this kind of
text flow is possible. Similarly is it possible to ensure
that the numbering would work?
Take care

If you have a printer that can take large enough paper, you can still
use Suzanne's method. Set your margins on the wide paper so that the
text all ends up on the left. Put frames in the giant right margin to
hold the notes. Print it, chop or fold the giant pages down the
middle, and bind it.
