History/Social Science Textbook Adoption

Recommended Secondary History/Social Science Textbooks and Materials

New secondary history/social science textbooks and support materials recommended for adoption and purchase by the Long Beach Unified School. The Board of Education is scheduled to hear recommendations and consider adoption at the April 13, 2022 meeting. 

All instructional materials are being recommended after extensive review and examination by committees of Long Beach Unified School District teachers and administrators, using the State Board of Education criteria, focusing on alignment to the History/Social Science Standards for California Public Schools and the California History/Social Science Framework. Consideration included content organization, assessment, integration of technology, universal access/strategies for working with diverse student populations, and instructional planning and teacher support, and alignment to district priorities. These textbooks are for core and elective courses in grade 6 through grade 12 listed below.
