Think more deeply and work more independently at A level History through a carefully thought-out enquiry approach from SHP. Enquiring History: It makes you think! The OFSTED report on school history suggests that the current generation of A Level students have been poorly served by exam-based textbooks which spoon-feed students while failing to enthuse them or develop deeper understandings of studying History The Schools History Project has risen to this challenge with a new series for the next generation. Enquiring History is SHP's fresh approach to Advanced Level History that aims: - To motivate and engage readers - To help readers think and gain independence as learners - To encourage enquiry, and deeper understanding of periods and the people of the past - To engage with current scholarship - To prepare A Level students for university Key features of each Student book - Clear compelling narrative - books are designed to be read cover to cover - Structured enquiries - that explore the core content and issues of each period - Feature panels between enquiries provide context, overview, and extension - Full colour illustrations throughout Britain since 1945 This title examines the key social developments in post war Britain from 1945-1990 and places them in their political context. It examines how changes in the media, and in the lives of women, young people, and immigrants worked together to transform Britain. These are both fascinating yet alien topics for today's A Level students - old but not quite yet 'history' - potent and controversial, but only dimly understood. This book sets out to shine a truly historical light on each topic using the vast array of powerful evidence. And underlying it all to address the key question: Has Britain become a more divided society than it was in 1945? Or is that just a myth fuelled by nostalgia? Web-based support includes - lesson planning tools and guidance for teachers available from the SHP website - eBooks for whole class teaching or individual student reading available from eBook retailers

I am struck by the clever teaching techniques and the interesting content....Diana's focus starts with her own story - complete with photographs and a timeline. The power of the personal used to great effect. Then she dives into the great enquiry question: When, if ever, did Britain become a multicultural society? Students are asked to make a timeline and look at the how far events can be seen to show Britain as fully multicultural. They are introduced to interesting topics, asked to think in the grey as well as the black and white and are introduced to concepts such as 'typicality' and 'the qualified conclusion'. Great content and a great enquiry based focus - what more would you want to turn you on to history post 16? * Richard McFahn, History Resource Cupboard blog *
