So I was lucky enough to get the chance to work with an amazing group of people on some 7-10 Humanities textbooks.
Lead history author is Peter Van Noorden. He’s a machine. Lead geography author is Danielle O’Leary, winner of the ‘up and coming’ teacher award in 2019. Also Aleryk Fricker has been a total legend writing First Nations content.
These textbooks are different because they are underpinned by a developmental understanding of learning.
I wrote activities and questions targeted at various levels of a developmental framework. Other textbooks just have a heap of activities with no thought for skill development or increasing difficulty.
There is also an epic ‘how to’ skills section, with loads of worked examples.
Check them out!
