Key Stage 3 History by Aaron Wilkes: Renaissance, Revolution and Reformation: Britain 1509-1745 Student Book by Aaron Wilkes, James Ball

Written to match the new 2014 National Curriculum with expert support from experienced Head of History, Aaron Wilkes, the third editions of this well-loved series will hook your students' interest in KS3 History whilst helping them prepare for GCSE. Renaissance, Revolution and Reformation 1509-1745 is the second of four new third editions, and covers: life in Tudor Britain, a world of discovery, Elizabeth I, the Stuarts, England at war, Cromwell's Commonwealth, the Restoration and change over time.


Renaissance, Revolution & Reformation by Aaron Wilkes is a very good book. The author has produced a very accessible text with a variety of activities which will interest, excite and stimulate young historians. I particularly like the problem based approach which gives insight into a broad spectrum of both social and political issues of the period. An engaging text book which students and teachers alike will find most useful. I think Aaron has produced a good book. It is accessible for those that do not like reading large quantities of material; there is lots of colour, fun clear diagrams and good maps; youngsters will particularly like the cartoon characters in many of the exercises. I also like the chronological approach and the clarity with which particular topics have been presented. There is a good variety of exercises, particularly the assessment tasks, that can easily be differentiated. Paul Barter, Stover School, Devon
