With 1 to 1 laptops in our high schools, will there really be any reason to keep buying paper textbooks?
I submit that these sites alone would be more than adequate for replacing U.S. History content information found in expensive commercial paper textbooks:
Lessons at Hippocampus
Open Digital Textbook at WikiBooks
American History Digital Textbook
Best History Sites
MARVEL - Maine's Virtual Library
Similar online textbooks and quality content can be found in other subject areas.
Questions: How much does your school district budget per student annually for high school textbooks? Anyone have numbers to share?
