Social Studies Adoption Committee wants, needs, your input: please inspect the candidate text books and supporting materials and provide your feedback and preferences.
These are the social studies text books middle school students will have for many, many years. So, even if your student is in early primary grades, they will still be affected. Now is the time to speak up!
Viewing continues until June 18th 2015. All instructional materials are available for viewing at the John Stanford Center for Educational Excellent AND at 5 middle school libraries:
If your students happen to be at those middle school, urge them to pop by the library and check out the texts and leave feedback. Their input matters! If you visit the school, be sure to stop in at the office first to register as a visitor. They can direct you to the library.
(Note: 6th graders study ancient civilizations, 7th graders study world history, and 8th study US history to 1900)
