You can rely on the textbooks to:
Ensure that History is accessible to all

Straightforward language, manageable chunks of text and plenty of bullet points guide you through the content, which is covered in the amount of depth that students need.

Bring historical events, people and developments to life

Ben Walsh is known for selecting memorable sources and extracts that work alongside the narrative to draw out the big concepts within each topic.

Focus on what really matters

The features in the book are designed to consolidate students' knowledge of the key points – from 'Focus' boxes and regular 'Knowledge check' questions to end-of-chapter summaries.

Break down exam skills into small steps

Activities throughout the chapters and larger 'Focus tasks' teach students how to select, organise and use their knowledge to explain, analyse, evaluate and make judgements.

Provide easy-to-follow exam advice

Clear explanations of the exam requirements, analysis of what a good answer might look like and handy tips help students to feel confident and prepared.
