Contrasts and Connections: Teacher's Resource Book by Tim Lomas
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This is the Schools History Project's core text for National Curriculum history in Year 7. This book covers two core study units - the Roman Empire and medieval realms (along with a supplementary unit on Islamic civilizations). It builds on links between the three units to provide a culturally balanced and coherent scheme of work for the first year of Key Stage 3. "Contrasts and Connections" is part of the "Discovering the Past" series, an integrated series of colour textbooks covering National Curriculum history for the age range 5 to 16. This pupil's book offers enquiry-based tasks designed to help the reader towards the Attainment Targets. Each enquiry focuses on one particular area of the Attainment Targets. The teacher's resource book offers guidance on the Attainment Targets and assessment, together with photocopiable support and extension material for pupils over a wide ability range.
