Alternate Text:
I have taught WHAP for 18 years and my experience is that students struggle with the complexity of the Stearns text, which is the text adopted by the district. This year in addition to Stearns I will be posting alternative readings in another book. These readings are more concise, clear,  and focused on the College Board Key Concepts.  However, this book is not available through the school and must be acquired by students on their own. It is widely available in both new and used formats. All teachers on the WHAP team will be offering readings from the 3rd edition of this book. Students are NOT REQUIRED to purchase this book. It just MAY be helpful with developing reading comprehension. Topics covered will have readings from both texts posted. Students may read either one they wish.
