The Social Studies textbook will be used as a reference guide, therefore students will not be issued a social studies textbook.

At HGMS the SS Department follows the state mandated curriculum (TEKS) which is aligned with the STAAR test. 

Teachers will provide students with various forms of information using sources such as: websites, powerpoints, articles, primary and secondary documents. 

Please discuss any textbook concerns you have with your child's Social Studies teacher.
