For my honors project I will be examining and analyzing a high school American history textbook. The specific textbook that I will be looking at is _America: Pathways to the Present_ written by Andrew Clayton, Elisabeth Israels Perry, Linda Reed, and Allan M. Winkler. This textbook was published by Prentice Hall in the year 2003. I will be analyzing the textbook for it’s historical accuracy, checking that the events covered in the textbook tell the actual story of what really happened during that event. I will determine the textbook completely covers incidents that happened during big events. I will also check the textbook and examine how closely it aligns to the Ohio State Standards for High School American History. Lastly, I will examine how the Textbook moves from one historical event to another, analyzing how well the textbook connects the events to one another and how well it shows that one event builds to another.
