Policy:
Background: A committee of teachers reviewed best practice and current material options in order to make a selection for the World Civilization I and Advanced World Civilization courses. The teachers chose:
World History for World Civilization for World Civilization Course 1 (with online access)
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
Copyright: 2018
ISBN: 978-0-544-66822-5
And
World History and Geography for Advanced World Civilization Course
Publisher: McGraw Hill
Copyright: 2018
ISBN: 978-0-07-668386-4
File Attachment:
Summary: Because the current textbooks for the World Civilization 1 and Advanced World Civilization courses are outdated, the committee reviewed various materials. The materials include resources for differentiation and assessment. The textbook has been on display 30 days at the School Service Center. No feedback has been received from the community. The cost will be $ 36,169 as reflected in a quote from the publisher. This includes student texts, teacher manuals and online student textbook and teacher access for seven years. This adoption is already included in this year's textbook budget.
