Textbooks, Class Materials, & Summer Assignment

posted Jul 29, 2013, 3:31 PM by Jamie Martin   [ updated Aug 21, 2013, 12:44 PM ]

For 2013-14 AP US History, you will need a copy of the textbook, The American Pageant (ISBN: 978-061-84-79-405). It should be 13th edition or newer. If you would like to purchase an e-book version of the textbook instead, that is also acceptable (and encouraged). 

You will also need to purchase the study guide that accompanies the textbook (ISBN: 978-054-71-66-964). No photocopies will be accepted this year, so you NEED to buy it. You CANNOT make copies of my book or your friend's book. Bottom line.

Syllabus and Summer Assignment are linked here as well as on my Documents page. Don't forget to turn in your summer assignment before the 1st day of school! Email me if you have any other questions or concerns! :)
