• Welcome to the Dual Credit U.S. History Class in Room A107!

    This page is a resource for students and parents to pull assignments, notes, etc. from class each day throughout the school year. 

    As information becomes available for this course for the upcoming 2020-2021 school year, please check back periodically throughout the summer for potential updates. Students enrolled in DC U.S. History (HIST 1301) need to have purchased the textbook Give Me Liberty Vol. 1-6th Edition by Eric Foner by the first week of classes. The companion readers will be used later in the semester and do not have to be purchased for the first week of school, however it is suggested to purchase in a timely manner. Aside from purchasing the textbook, students do not have any summer assignments or suggested reading assignments for this course. 



    Information to note: 

    Ms. Taylor will make every endeavour to update this webpage once a week during the school year; however it is likely that it will be updated each day as we work through assignments and instructions for class.

    Grades will be updated on Mondays and Fridays each week. Should a student have questions about their grades or any of their assignments, please feel free to contact me via email or in person during classtime or during the Academy period each day this school year. 

    Books can be purchased at the Lone Star College Bookstore, on Amazon or other book retailers. The ISBN, general price range, and picture of each book cover is listed below. No EBOOK versions of the textbook please. Students are welcome to rent their textbooks, however please be aware most rentals are due right before Fall Final Exams in December.
