With highly engaging visual content and each unit broken down into a series of spreads, the course provides a clear path through the Key Concepts set by the 2008 Programme of Study but also gives clear links to how and where APP, Functional English, PLTS can be covered or assessed.
Each unit has a clear set of objectives that are covered in colourful spreads, as well as 'Check Your Progress' sections to allow teachers to monitor pupils' development. Series edited by Alf Wilkinson, National Subject Lead for History at KS3, Derrick Murphy, QCA Advisor, and Elizabeth Sparey, a Head of Department at Ripon School, KS3 History also provides:
• A clear focus on links to local history
• Guidance on how one topic or period leads to another - giving pupils an understanding of chronology
• Links with the present to engender understanding of how we got to where we are now
Supporting a diverse curriculum, the series places the history of the UK within the context of the wider world which gives pupils a clear understanding of the rich cultural diversity that makes up the UK today.
Deliver engaging KS3 History lessons with Teacher Resources offering lesson plans for each spread, and resource sheets providing in depth information on key topics where appropriate. Differentiation is clearly signposted in the lesson plans - with extensive guidance on engaging less able pupils as well as extension work for the gifted and talented. Grids are provided to show exactly where each of the Key Concepts, APP opportunities, Functional English and PLTS are covered.
The ICT component provides additional KS3 History resources - engaging images, as well as video and audio clips to be displayed from an interactive whiteboard. Powerpoint files and Word files with assessment ideas are also included.
