Modernity for Primer Bookstore

For the 2019-2020 academic year, our history and literature studies will focus on Modernity – an epoch focusing primarily on the 19th and 20th centuries, but with roots extending into the early Enlightenment.

Parents are not required to purchase these books for their students. These will be used in class. Teachers will give suggested homework for use at home. Only if you wish to complete that homework at home, will you need to purchase these books.
