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 HistoryThe 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 universityKey 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- 'Insight' panels between enquiries provide context, overview, and extension - Full colour illustrations throughoutThe Crusades: Conflict and controversy 1095-1291There has never been a more important time to study the Crusades.
Religious conflict is a fact of life in the twenty-first century no less than it was in the medieval world. And yet the world of the Crusades is so different from ours that it takes a massive leap of imagination to make sense of these events.
This book takes on that challenge: opening a window onto the 12th and 13th century worlds to understand what on earth was going on.
It examines the Crusades themselves; the controversies surrounding them; and the past and current re-interpretations of the period.
