9780003222173: The World This Century: Working with Evidence

A lively core text for GCSE Modern World History Courses. It includes in-depth coverage of the main historical events of the twentieth century and assignment units with suggestions for relevant individual and group historical enquiry, and emphasising the development of empathetic skills.

This textbook contains over 170 exercises based on a wide variety of primary and secondary sources. The exercises adopt a stepped approach, with the later questions of each exercise encouraging a more free ranging response. As a skills-based book, the exercises seek to bring out the ability to compare and contrast different types of evidence, to recognise the limitations of evidence and to deploy evidence in support of a particular argument. There are many exercises designed to develop emphatic skills. Most chapters contain assignment units.
Unlike many evidence based texts, this book also provides a substantial element of narrative on which the pupil is tested. The source material is continually integrated with the narrative to encourage cross-referencing skills.

Review:

‘Is a competent and attractive book. Evidence is emphasised throughout. It supplies an extra dimension for the narrative as well as starting points for much worthy activity; evaluation, interpretation, deduction and recreation.’
Times Educational Supplement
