Welcome to American History. You will be responsible for information from a variety of sources: classroom lectures, videos, the textbook to name a few. You will need a spiral notebook for notes. You will normally receive an assignment sheet at the beginning of each unit. This assignment sheet should make it easier for you to plan and prioritize your workload. Missing assignments because of absence will not be a problem because you will have the assignment sheet. If you are unsure what the assignment is for the day (and you have lost your assignment sheet) just look here. Chapter and Unit resources and reviews are available on the textbook website (located on links page) but the on-line edition of the textbook is no longer available.
