Written by experienced examiners and teachers, this new edition of the bestselling textbook for AQA GCSE Humanities has been updated to support the 2009 AQA GCSE Humanities specification. Both core units are supported as well as four optional units from the course. In each unit the key concepts are explained and then exemplified through relevant and up-to-date case studies. Tasks throughout each unit aim to support a range of learning styles as well as developing knowledge and understanding and the skills of investigation, interpretation and analysis. As well as all the reassurance of a board-specific textbook, GCSE Humanities for AQA second edition has been made more accessible to meet the needs of mixed ability classes, more stimulating and engaging to capture students' interest and now provides more help in unpicking the assessment requirements of the new specification to allow students to maximise their marks in the exam.
