You're History: Everyday People & Everyday Lives Student Book by Paul Turner


You're History: Everyday People & Everyday Lives Student Book by Paul Turner

You're History integrates book and whiteboard materials on a fascinating range of topics that will show students how the world they live in, and the traditions they encounter, owe so much to the past.


The text is immediately attractive to use - plenty of large photographs and pictures, short-ish source extracts, and interesting tasks to do... Text level is appropriate for Year Seven, and the sheer variety of activities is impressive. I defy any Year Seven - or teacher - not to be interested in the contents and activities. Lots of 'fun'- type and slightly different content, rather than the standard run of the mill... All the activities bear the hallmark of having been tried and tested in the classroom, and are ready to run as they are... If you are looking for a thematic approach to the New Secondary Curriculum then this text makes a good starting point. Alf Wilkinson, Historical Association All in all, an extremely versatile and very useful resource for teachers with little time on their hands. Worth every penny! The CD ROM is excellent as is the accompanying textbook. TES Review Bank
