Synopsis

Turning Points in Welsh History Activity Pack by Stuart Broomfield, Euryn (Head of History, Ysgol Bro Myrddin) Madoc-Jones

Also available in Welsh, this text is accessible to a whole range of ability at KS3. The layout with integrated activities that teachers can use directly from the book is accompanied by an activity pack which provides extra stimuli. The text is divided into two sections, 1485-1760 and 1760-1914. Each section opens with a super lesson giving an overview of major themes and developments within the period, before going on to consider in depth some of the important turning-points of change. A number of associated activities will require asking historical questions, observation, enquiry, interpretations and understanding of the similarities to and the differences from the present day and a comparison between illustrations from different dates within the period. Some of the topics covered include the accession of Henry VII and his links with Wales, Bishop William Morgan and the translation of the Bible into Welsh, the growth of industry, the Merthyr uprising of 1831 and the Penrhyn lockout.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
