Hodder History: Concepts and Processes is a brand new series of Key Stage 3 history topics tailor-made to support the teaching and learning of the revised National Curriculum. It delivers units of content which can slot into existing schemes of work. Each title in the series follows an enquiry-based approach to learning about the topic and its relevancy and significance for pupils today. The concepts and processes outlined in the 2008 Programme of Study underpin the approach to the delivery of the content which will help pupils develop their knowledge, skills and understanding of history. Each book comes with FREE downloadable lesson plans which are differentiated for different levels of ability plus additional FREE web resources for pupils. 'The Scramble for Africa' This topic involves pupils in the controversial history of the British Empire. It presents contrasting evidence on the events of the Scramble for Africa, then asks them to weigh up the big question: should they feel pride or shame at the legacy of Empire?On the one side, it presents the economic and political benefits of Empire; on the other side, it presents a depth study of Zulu village life and the impact of the occupation on African culture. The varying viewpoints should help pupils reach a reasoned opinion on whether the Empire has resulted in lasting good or lasting damage.
