A NEW ADVENTURE IN HISTORY AT KEY STAGE 3 In a break from the traditional, the author takes a topical approach to the exploration of the twentieth century rather than a chronological one. For example, the Unit on Money includes: Irish money and the reasons for its existence; the abdication of Edward VIII (because no coins were issued with his portrait); the history of shops and shopping including the evolution of supermarkets; the Wall Street Crash and the Great Depression, and several other topics. Throughout the book, many activities, projects and research tasks are provided, giving many opportunities to make the topic come alive and to make the History learning environment more colourful and stimulating. The Cross-curricular Themes and Skills and Capabilities are highlighted throughout by corresponding icons. This book can be used with a wide range of ability levels as the activities included range from the taxing to those more suitable for foundation level pupils. The text is not intended to be an exhaustive account of the century. It is instead an in depth look at six topics in eight Units.The compulsory study of Irish partition, and the study on Transport, are covered in two Units each.
