MISL Textbook Collection
The MISL has closed and our collections have been moved to room 266 Fourth Avenue Building (4th and Harrison). We plan to reopen in mid-July as the Curriculum and AV Library. Meanwhile, you have access to the state adopted materials and lists via our online catalog (see the links below).
The curriculum collection includes instructional material and textbooks, most of which are from the list of Adopted Instructional Materials from the State of Oregon. We do not receive funding for purchasing materials for this collection, so the samples that we receive come from textbook publishers, grants, and other donations. A number of textbook publishers no longer send samples. Instead, they want teachers to view samples online. For that reason we have also created lists (by subject) with links to publisher sites, when available. These lists are based on the Oregon Department of Education Adopted Instructional Materials list. You can access these lists via the following links:
- English Language Arts and Literacy (2014-2020)
- English Language Proficiency (English as a Second Language, 200702013)
- Health & Physical Education (2008-2014)
- Mathematics (2010-2016)
- Science (2010-2016)
- Social Sciences (2012-2018)
- The Arts (2006-2012)
- World Languages (2011-2017)
Please refer to the Adopted Instructional Materials list for the most recent adoption schedule and selections.
Books in the collection are available for 2-week checkout. While our first priority is to serve the needs of students and faculty in Graduate School of Education programs, the collection is also available to local educators.
