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. Topics and themes allow opportunities to develop core history skills, with plenty of flexibility for teachers to adapt and integrate their own materials and ideas. Rule Makers & Rule Breakers features themes which emphasise the personal and social aspects of history. The textbook features key objectives and questions set throughout, with methods to assess and review progress; topics covered in overview, outline and depth levels; and depth studies which give an opportunity for detailed project work. All topics have regular features that cover world history and check chronology. Varied tasks and activity ideas all clearly tackle history and encourage thinking skills along with literacy and numeracy opportunities which are built in throughout. This book also provides a fresh look at popular topics together with new and unusual alternative topics. CD-ROM also available.
