Reviews

  • "The books give them basic skills in source analysis and extensive writing practice. It's a good place for KS4 teachers to then build on."

    Hollie Jones, History Teacher, Academy

  • "Pupils are certainly more confident and competent with second-order concepts, and their transition from KS3 to GCSE has been smooth"

    Terry Ward, Head of History, Comprehensive Faith School

  • "A lot of them claim History is their favourite subject. The book is largely responsible for that attitude."

    Andy Goodlad, Head of History, Stage Comprehensive

  • "The Kerboodle lesson presentations are very engaging... Some of the embedded worksheets are fantastic."

    VY, Head of History, Academy

  • "The [Kerboodle] resources without a doubt help us to be creative. I can create lessons that inspire the students."

    Lee Arnold, Head of History, Free School

  • "There are a lot of source based questions. That's one of the key elements in the books that we like. Ofsted has picked up on it."

    Romana Sacranie, History Teacher, Faith School

  • "The books do very well in interpretation. Students from an early age can straight away grasp issues of provenance, motive and reliability and trustworthiness."

    Hollie Jones, History Teacher, Academy

  • "The book is hot on the AO2 [second order concepts], which how much things have changed or the causes and consequences. Measuring similarities between now and another period, and the differences: those are really good."

    LJ, Head of History, State Comprehensive
