History Transformed for Stage 4 and Stage 5 has been written by experienced NSW teachers who bring an empathetic understanding of the curriculum and of the needs of today’s history classroom to the entire resource package.

  • Overviews are presented in the text as engaging double page spreads with timelines and maps at the start of each section, and a more detailed video to introduce the topic that students can watch in class or at home. Further overview material is integrated where appropriate, with each chapter containing at least one activity that explicity draws on overview content.
  • Concepts and skills development are embedded throughout the course in a range of actvities that help students to make the necessary connections between the skill and the subject matter. These activities are tagged with the relevant skills and concepts being addressed so that teachers can ensure all syllabus areas are covered.

A huge range of activities and assessment tools:

  • A range of activities throughout each chapter clearly address syllabus skills and concepts in context. Skills developed across the series are taught with increasing levels of challenge as students progress through the textbooks.
  • Visible Thinking Routines inspired by Harvard’s Project Zero have also been utilised throughout to promote student engagement, understanding and independence. Each chapter begins with a Visible Thinking Routine for initial engagement. An optional end-of-chapter activity encourages students to reflect on what they have learned through out the chapter.
  • Other end-of-chapter activities include extended response questions, groupwork and research activities, a creative task, and a cross-curricular task, giving the teacher a wide range of choices when deciding how to consolidate learning for their students.
