GJUHSD follows a thorough textbook adoption process adhering to California state statutes. The GJUHSD Social Studies Adoption Committee includes administrators, and instructors.
Over the past several months, GJUHSD’s Social Studies Adoption Committee has reviewed and evaluated many different programs. After much deliberation, the Committee and has identified one program that best meets our needs of our students and expectations of our staff, while fully addressing the California History-Social Studies framework and the California Literacy standards. The program identified for each subject area are as follows:
World History – IMPACT World History, Culture, & Geography, 2nd Ed, 2019, McGraw Hill Education (ISBN: 978-0-07-675578-3)
American Government – IMPACT Principles of American Democracy, 2nd Ed, 2019, McGraw Hill Education (ISBN: 978-0-07-675563-9)
Economics – IMPACT Principles of Economics, 2nd Ed, 2019, McGraw Hill Education (ISBN: 978-0-07-675555-4)
As part of our adoption process, these materials have been piloted in some of our classrooms allowing us to gather feedback from teachers and students on the effectiveness of the program.
Before the GJUSHD Board of Trustee’s can adopt these instructional materials, the textbooks and accompanying materials must be made available for public review. The textbooks and materials for all of these programs are located in the GJUHS District Office at 12945 Marengo Road, Galt, CA and will be available for review until December 11, 2018. The Board of Trustees will vote on the adoption of these programs at the regularly scheduled Board Meeting on December 11, 2018. To review the materials or provide input on the programs, please stop by the District Office or e-mail Sean Duncan, Director of Educational Services at firstname.lastname@example.org.
