KS3 History by Aaron Wilkes: Industry, Reform & Empire Student Book (1750-1900) by Aaron Wilkes, James Ball

This gripping and intriguing Student Book combines an enquiry-led approach with factual narrative. Written by experienced Head of History, Aaron Wilkes in an approachable and understandable style, including: relevant and fascinating facts, interesting and motivating activities, and specific sections to extend or reinforce learning. Content has been thoroughly researched and revised in this popular 2nd edition.


...the choice of topics is interesting - from the Agricultural, Industrial and Transport Revolutions to sections on Jack the Ripper, the birth of professional sport in Victorian Britain, the impact of Darwin's theories and the birth of Cadbury's...All in all this seems a very strong contender to be adopted for any secondary school History department, and I will certainly be considering it for my own school.
