Synopsis

Trobwyntiau Yn Hanes Cymru by Stuart Broomfield, Euryn (Head of History, Ysgol Bro Myrddin) Madoc-Jones

This history textbook for schools is aimed at Key Stage 3 (Years 7-9). It looks at Welsh history in two periods, 1485-1760 and 1760-1914, concentrating on significant events or changes which affect modern-day Wales. Turning Points approaches Welsh history from a new perspective, and provides lively, modern and stimulating material for complete lessons for the whole ability range. It is lavishly illustrated in colour and black and white, and each time period is introduced by a 'super-lesson' of visual and documentary sources to give an overview of the major themes and developments. Events considered and assessed for their significance include the accession of King Henry VII as a 'Welsh' monarch of England; the translation of the Bible into Welsh and the significance for Welsh history; Wales at the hub of the Industrial Revolution with the development of transport and industrial society; protest and the changing political and social aspirations of the Welsh in the nineteenth century and the development of a Welsh identity. The book will be accompanied by a separate pack of 12 photocopiable activity sheets.

Reviews

This book is an excellent teaching resource...The book is detailed, attractively presented ... contains a wealth of visual and written sources ... also contains some good ideas on a range of teaching methods which could be used to make lessons more exciting and appealing for pupils.
