Garden Grove Unified Parents and Community Invited to New History and Social Sciences Textbooks

Textbook Preview Starts 2/22

New History/Social Science textbooks recommended for adoption and purchase by the Garden Grove Unified School District will be on public display from Friday, February 22nd, through Monday, March 18th, at the Garden Grove Unified School District Education Center located on 10331 Stanford Ave., Garden Grove.  The new materials are for History/Social Sciences grades K-12.

Regular preview times are weekdays from 8:30 A.M. to 4:30 P.M. in the Textbook Preview Area, on the first floor of the Education Center, with an additional examination period on Wednesday, March 13th from 5:00 P.M. to 7:00 P.M.

The Board of Education is scheduled to consider adoption of the recommended instructional materials at its March 19th board meeting for introduction beginning next school year.

All materials on display are recommended for the Board of Education adoption after a parent review period and following extensive evaluation by teachers, GGUSD staff, and school district administrators.  Materials are evaluated based on accuracy, organization of content, and alignment with the state’s academic content standards.  Evaluators also examined the integration of technology and the presence of clear and definite strategies for working with diverse student populations.
