Online Textbook Resources

Since we only have a class set of textbooks, you can still access class content on the publisher’s textbook webpage. There are some great resources on this site like audio versions of our text, extra activities, and links to cool stuff that relates to the texts or authors we read. Be sure to use this resource at home!
