The district-mandated textbook by Glencoe McGraw-Hill is aptly (and enthusiastically) titled United States History & Geography: Modern Times. While everyone puckers up when they hear the word "mandated", you really have to give this textbook a chance. The authors finally stopped trying to cram every "flavor-of-the-month" version of history down our throats and scaled the books way back. It really is the finest, and most concise, textbook that Dr. Hartnell has ever been "told" to use. You will receive reading assignments from this textbook as part of your required Pathways Packets. Each chapter is made up of various sections, which they refer to as "lessons". To access the specific lessons within each chapter, simply click the hyperlink to download a PDF version.
