method books for high school age students?

I think mostly they want reading skills and maybe some jazz training. What method book would you give to your average 9th grader. At that age I was playing arban and Clarke technique studies on trumpet. Its been a while since I taught a high school student. I guess rubank is old school. I can do the ferling etudes if shes got chops. but I suspect she will be playing not at that level. What do you guys use for written etude books? Im currently working out of the Locour etudes but thats way too hard? Ideas? K

thanks I'm famiilar with the Rubank and I used the Universal method in college also. Thanks K
I have the niehaus series and use those for jazz phrasing, you are right about them. I have the klose, Top tones and the berklee series I have ,lets see how her reading chops are and what she wants to get into (bands). Thanks again K
These are all things I have used and heard of but I'll check out the learn as you play series. tHanks K
