The new fourth edition of Technology, War and Independence is Book 3 of the best-selling Oxford KS3 History by Aaron Wilkes series. It covers twentieth century history, including the suffragettes, First and Second World Wars, democracy and dictatorship, the Cold War, the end of the British Empire, migration, changes in medicine and public health, and globalization.
This textbook introduces the history content and skills needed to support a coherent knowledge-rich curriculum, prepares students for success in Key Stage 3 History, and builds solid foundations for GCSE study:
- Carefully designed content and assessments support student progression throughout the textbook series
- Historical sources and interpretations are presented with clear provenances
- Over to you activities for every lesson check students' knowledge and understanding, and are ramped in difficulty to build confidence
- Step-by-step guidance on key History skills provides scaffolding to introduce students to the skills needed for further study
- Literacy focus feature helps improve students' essay writing skills and grammar
- Complete assessment support, including quick knowledge quizzes and exam-style assessments
- This textbook retains Aaron Wilkes' unique and engaging style, shown in recent research to inspire and motivate young historians
- Technology, War and Independence Kerboodle: Lessons, Resources, Assessment offers a digital subscription packed full of customisable interactives, worksheets, animations and automarked assessments. I really like the new step-by-step History Skills - it builds up the skills pupils need to apply in order to effectively analyse sources; clear pupil-friendly language allows pupils to gain confidence when looking at sources. The assessment approach is excellent too. I particularly like the way the scaffolding allows confidence to be built in preparation for the 'big write'.
