Textbook & Materials

posted Jul 29, 2013, 4:05 PM by Jamie Martin

For 2013-14 US History, you will need a copy of the textbook, The American Vision (ISBN: 978-007-87-99-846). Make sure it is the one with a blue cover, and not the modified version used in LAUSD or other public schools. If you would like to purchase an e-book version of it instead, that is also acceptable (and encouraged). 

You will also need a single-subject spiral-bound notebook for journaling and other in-class purposes, if you are getting your school supply shopping done early.

Here's a copy of the syllabus & the curriculum, if you're interested in an advance look. Email me if you have any questions or concerns! :)
