New textbooks on display for public

NEW TEXTBOOKS proposed for adoption in the Garden Grove Unified School District will be available for public viewing through March 13.

New history/social science textbooks recommended for adoption and purchase by the Garden Grove Unified School District will be on public display through Monday, March 18 at the GGUSD Education Center located on 10331 Stanford Ave., Garden Grove.  The new materials are for 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 13 from 5 to 7 p.m..

The Board of Education is scheduled to consider adoption of the recommended instructional materials at its March 19 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 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.
